One of the top must-do experiences on any travelers bucket-list is to swim with Whale Sharks the Goliathan gentle giants of the deep blue. And one of the best places in the world to see whale sharks is off the Riviera Maya in Mexico!
Every year between June 1st to the 15th of September, hundreds, even thousands, of these spotted beauties congregate in the warm Caribbean ocean.
Luckily this results in a unique opportunity for snorkeling with whale sharks on a day trip from one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations.
Whale sharks are the largest fish in the world and can grow up to 12 meters and weigh 19,000 kilograms – That’s 19x times the weight of a Great White Shark for those that are counting!
These gentle giants feed by scooping up plankton – micro-plants and animals, along with any small fish that happen to be around, with their vast gaping mouths while swimming up close to the water’s surface – and while individual plankton may be small, there are so many in the ocean that the whale sharks can easily get to and maintain their impressive size by hoovering them all up.
Globally whale sharks are listed as critically endangered – which is honestly insane given the tourism benefits they provide – in large part they’re still being hunted in parts of Asia, including the Philippines because their meat, fins, and oil are highly valued on international markets. They sadly can also be victims of by-catch in fishing gear.
