What makes us different from other operators? They put 10 to 15 guests for boat. We prefer maximum 6 guests for boat. Since all operators are allowed maximum 2 hours in the whale shark area this policy allows you maximum time in the water, better ratio guide / guests and a more personal experience. According to regulation other operators allow 5 swimmers and the guide at the same time in the water. If you have come with your partner we prefer you two swim alone with the whale shark, without sharing your first whale shark encounter with strangers. If you come with children or many members of your family you and your guide will decide the best way for you to enjoy, maybe small groups as starter and a final jump with all together. If you are elderly or poor swimmer, or just a bit shy the guide may jump with you alone to make sure you have the best experience possible.

Itinerary Details

Operated by: La Paz Whale Sharks VIP Tours

Your guide will lead you to the boat where you will be equipped with premium full snorkel equipment: mask, snorkel, fins and wetsuit. Life vest is optional in the water, mandatory during the boat ride.
Our experienced captain will search for whale sharks in the protected area, while your guide gives you a briefing about whale shark facts and biology, safety, and how to enjoy this activity with maximum respect for the environment and the marine creatures. Probably you will have to endure his /her many guide jokes too. Our guides are marine biologists or dive masters with deep love for the ocean and very knowledgeable, ready to answer all your questions.
Our guide will swim with you and the whale sharks taking videos and pictures that are included in your tour price. If conditions allow we prefer you jump only with your companions, not with other guests, so you have a more private and enjoyable experience. The number of times depends on the conditions, average is 3 or more jumps for every couple. The length of the water experience depends on the whale shark speed and your own personal fitness. Get ready to have a lot of fun!
