Welcome to the  Whale Shark tour in Holbox Island, Mexico. Enjoy this and other magnificent tours with us.

Isla Holbox fishing is excellent and plentiful groupers and snappers pretty large. The inhabitants practice diving and fishing for lobster and octopus.

The whale shark is the largest fish that exists in the world today, can grow up to 15 meters long. The whale shark prefers the warm surface water in areas where there are upwellings of cold water rich in nutrients, since these conditions favor the growth of plankton which is alimentan.Es one of the reasons why there are so many whale sharks in the waters of Cancun, Isla Mujeres, Holbox in the Mexican Caribbean in summer.

The whale shark has in common with whales except for its size and the fact that only eats tiny plankton that gathers with his mouth open. Normally it feeds on the surface or slightly below this. It feeds by filtering through their gills small planktonic organisms that are in the water.

Whale sharks are viviparous animals and sometimes see young calves swimming with the elderly.

Whale sharks are very docile and gentle, do not get scared when they are approaching divers or swimmers.
