AOL Travel Editor’s Review

From June to September speckled whale sharks (which average 25 feet in length and can reach 45 feet) come to the waters where the Gulf of Mexico meets the Caribbean. It’s possible to swim with these benign giants, whose preferred diet is plankton and small fish, not you. It’s a completely overwhelming experience. To reach one of the better vendors, take the ferry to Isla Mujeres and then go out with Serious Divers.

  What A Tour!!! We did our swim with whale sharks from Cancun’s Puerto Juarez and it was AMAZING! You should definitely take the tour from Cancun and make sure the company is licensed. We went with: http://www.swimwithwhalesharks.com My wife and two kids (ages 8 and 13) all had the time of our lives! The trip included a swim with whale sharks and a guided tour of a coral reef. We saw whale sharks, sea turtle, manta rays and thousands of brightly colored fish. All in all, I can’t say enough great things about our trip and the fine people who ran the tour. Everything from the booking process, to the confirmation emails, night before phone call to confirm our pickup time, and the food they provided, the entire day was the highlight of our vacation! Happy Travels, Seth Michaels...   Read More
