Check out all the Viator Holbox Island tours and excursions here!

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.  Isla Holbox is located north of Cancun and is almost unknown to tourist.  You can swim with these whales from June to September.  Have you swam with these gentle giants?  Tell us about it in the comments below.
