Whale Sharks

Whale Sharks

Every May through September, whale sharks migrate to the Mexican Caribbean to feed on the plankton-rich waters. During the summer season, you can book boat tours from Cancun to snorkel alongside them on their journey. From head to tail, these enormous creatures can stretch to 45-feet long, making them the world’s largest fish. Don’t be alarmed by the word shark; whale sharks are peaceful and harmless filter-feeders.
