Starting on May 15 to September whale shark season will officially begin just off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. Each year the whale shark, which is the largest and peaceful of the fish species, begin to arrive from their annual migration to the warm waters of the Mexican-Caribbean Sea near Cancun/Riviera Maya.
The gentle fish can grow around 40 feet in length (12 meters) long. That’s about the size of a school bus, weigh 11 tons, and pose no-threat to humans! As the sensational experience of swimming with whale sharks has become more popular over the past few years, official authorities have taken efforts to limit and reinforce many of the rules and regulations to protect these animals that are now on the threatened species list.
For this reason, it is important to work only with a highly knowledgeable and experienced tour company who operates their tours with the utmost priority to respect these animals at International Incentive Travel we can help you with that.
