EcoColors Tours has already more than 18 years of experience in running WHALE SHARK TOURS! During the whale shark season, from mid-May to mid-September, this great adventurous tour will depart daily from Cancun.

Where the Caribbean Sea meets the Gulf of Mexico, surrounding Isla Mujeres, Contoy and Holbox, the whale sharks come to the waters to feed on plankton. You will have the miraculous opportunity to swim and snorkel with the gentle giant in the clear blue water teeming with sea life.

All our boats can carry a maximum of 10 people, and professional certificated guides, who are naturalists and biologists, will be leading this tour. They are extremely knowledgeable about the whale sharks and their natural habitat, and have years of experience.
