Half-Day Whale Sharks Itinerary

Meet us at the marina for a fun-filled La Paz whale shark tour. We’ll hop into the boat and get out into the bay of La Paz to explore the waters of the Sea of Cortez. Your experienced guide will spend time searching for whale sharks while you get your snorkeling gear on. Once a whale shark has been spotted, you will take turns (two or 4 at a time) to spend time in the water with them while ensuring you don’t disturb them while they are feeding on plankton. We spend between 2 and 3 hours in the area with these magnificent sharks and then return to the marina

This is the ideal tour for people who are in La Paz and want to swim with whale sharks in a respectful and sustainable way.
