Whale Sharks (Holbox Island)

Swim With Whale Sharks may to September:

If you thought swimming with dolphins was an amazing adventure, try swimming with Whale Sharks.  Whale Sharks (Wikipedia) can grow to be over 40 foot long and weigh 45,000 pounds!  These whales are slow moving and eat plankton.  They are just about harmless to humans although other sharks may be in the area.  

The prime location to view them is in the open sea near Holbox Island north of Isla Mujeres.  Isla Holbox is located north of Cancun and is almost unknown to tourists.  You can swim with these whales from May to September.  The farther you are into summer the better the experience will be.
