It is important to mention that nature cannot be controlled, so we cannot guarantee the snorkeling with the whale sharks nor the sightings. The whale sharks come to the waters near Cancun to feed on plankton, but when there is no/not much plankton there are no/a few whale sharks. We recommend to make your reservation between mid-June to August since there is a higher possibility to see whale sharks.
