Swimming with the whale shark in Holbox

If you are interested in Holbox Island you probably love nature, if so you should not miss the opportunity to swim with the world’s largest fish, the whale shark.

Tiburón Ballena en Holbox

This impressive animal is in fact a shark who earned the title of “whale” shark because of its size as it can grow up to 49 feet. Fortunately there is nothing to be afraid as they feed exclusively on phytoplankton and small fishes.

The whale shark tour is usually a boat ride to where the shark swims, upon arrival, your guide will give you directions to swim safely with the shark. Then you will be taken to Cabo Catoche where you can enjoy a fish ceviche prepared by your guide.

You can hire the tour at the hotel reception of Villas Delfines, or any of the agencies in the village.
