If you are between 1 and 10 people and you wish to go in a whale shark private tour from Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Isla Mujeres, Cozumel, Riviera Maya or Tulum privately in ground transportation and boat with no one else but your party onboard you will get even more freedom and time to spend and enjoy with the whale sharks and on the reef afterwards. In this case you will need to pay the equivalent of 9 spots. Our company is well known for its early pickups in order to arrive with the whale sharks before the other companies so if you go private we specially emphasize the need to leave early as long as you agree with it to make sure you will enjoy the tour 100% and avoid the crowd.
Our boats have the biggest size authorized for this tour which is 31 to 33 feet long, they can fit up to 16 people but we only take 10 people onboard for this excursion. All of our boats have 2 engines, an emergency toilet and are without any doubt the safest and fastest of the area. They have a covering to protect you from the sun, comfortable seats as well as ladders to provide easy access in and out of the water. Depending on how fit you are as one gets tired quickly swimming next to the whale sharks, you will be able to spend between 5 to 10 minutes with them each time taking it in turn 2 by 2 in the water with the guide.
Depending on the sea conditions and the number of whale sharks if everything goes well you will be able do the activity up to 3 or 4 times if you book a private whale shark tour as long as the captain thinks it is safe to do so. The price for a private whale shark tour from 1 to 10 people per boat is paying 9 spots x $150 if you stay in Cancun, 9 x $160 from Puerto Morelos to Puerto Aventuras, 9 x $170 from south Puerto Aventuras to Akumal-Tulum.
