Safe and Fun

For comfort, safety, and the best whale shark snorkeling experience, we travel in small groups.

By joining us for one of our research trips, participants can interact with the whale sharks in their natural habitat, learn about the scientific research being undertaken, contribute to the conservation of these majestic sharks and have a great time doing it. The trips are a half-day in length, leaving from Cabo San Lucas early in the morning, driving 1 hour 30 mins up the peninsula towards La Paz Bay, a unique sheltered bay,  and a place where the whale sharks are known to arrive annually to feed.

After a briefing about whale sharks, you will be outfitted with snorkeling equipment, and a marine biologist trained in whale shark conservation will guide your trip as we set out in search of the sharks in the Bay. Trips will generally last three hours in length with snacks and refreshments provided before returning to shore, where you can change before the return trip back to Cabo San Lucas.
