You begin your Holbox whale shark tour with a hour to two hour boat ride out to the viewing area during which you might be lucky to see various types of marine life such as dolphins, manta rays, different fish, turtle. Of course bird life will fly above you as the area near Isla Holbox is also an area favored by many migratory species of birds. Once you find the Whale Sharks, then two by two with your guide you will be allowed to enter the water and observe and snorkel with these massive fish. Holbox whale shark trips depart early in the morning generally between 7:30 and 8 am, and last between 4 to 6 hours depending on the location of the great fish. Space is limited. Reservations are a must. Max on the boat is 10 clients plus captain and guide. For the tour we recommend bringing binoculars if you have them to observe the bird life. If you prefer, feel free to bring your own snorkel, mask and fins for your comfort.

Our Holbox Whale Shark tours are operated by Willy's Tours, life long Holbox Island resident with many years of experience in the operation of this wonderful snorkeling adventure.

Remember the great fish follow their food source, the plankton. Should it be a cloudy day the the plankton is deeper in the water, that is where the sharks will be and not on the surface.
