Have you wanted to see Whale Sharks up close and personal? We are not talking about 1 or 2 Whale Sharks but we mean 50-200 OR MORE at one time! Then read on. Want to rest on beautiful white sand beaches with crystal clear turquoise colored waters? Would you like to have both some beautiful reef dives as well as some “adventure” dives all in one trip. Then click here to learn more about our upcoming trip to Cancun / Playa del Carmen.
We begin with 4 nights in Playa Del Carmen where you can join a Whale Shark snorkeling tour, go diving, shop at the hundreds of stores along the pedestrian mall, relax at the beach or take the ferry to Cozumel for a day. (International laws prohibit donning diving gear when Whale Sharks are spotted from a boat but each year over 100,000 people snorkel with these magnificent beauties in the Cancun-to-Cozumel corridor during the Whale Shark Festival that runs from late May until mid-September. Whale Sharks come to these waters to feed on the plankton that spawn during this time period.) We will be staying at Adventura Mexicana, a Trip Advisor Top Rated All-Inclusive resort located a short two blocks from the beaches of Playa del Carmen and will be diving with the PADI 5-Star shop, ScubaPlaya. We plan on having 3 days of 2-tank dives in Playa but you can always schedule more dives if you are interested.
On the 19th we will rise early and travel 40 miles north to Cancun where we will catch a ferry to the marvelous Isla Mujeres. We will stay at the Playa Medialuna hotel located on the beautiful Playa Norte (North Beach) of Isla Mujeres. That afternoon we will do a two tank reef dive and the next day we will do two 2-tank adventure dives that will take us to deeper and more beautiful reefs or some fantastic wrecks (weather permitting). On our last day, when we can’t dive, we will again offer Whale Shark snorkeling either for those who didn’t get enough on the first day or as a “second shot” in case the trip from Playa was canceled due to bad weather. You can go snorkeling, diving or rent a golf cart for the day and tour Isla Mujeres. If enough divers are interested we can arrange a night dive as well. Night dives at this time of year almost always see Green Turtles feeding on the reefs and it is not uncommon to spot 5-10 on one night dive.
Please wait on your confirmation prior to booking your airfare.
