WHALE SHARK ENCOUNTER
Our Whale Shark snorkeling excursion is sure to be an unforgettable experience for you, and we are sure it has exactly what you are looking for. Enjoy the swim of your life with these amazing creatures with the help of our professional bilingual guides. There are few experiences in the world that match swimming alongside the largest fish in the ocean—especially when that fish is a shark! But don't worry, the whale sharks are known as the "gentle giants of the sea!” Once we’ve arrived at the water, our expert tour guides will brief you on everything you need to know about sharks in La Paz. After that, we’ll take a short boat ride to the areas where these magnificent animals are found, and you’ll get a chance to go snorkeling with whale sharks and other awesome marine animals! Jump in and snorkel beside these massive yet peaceful fish, and witness the enormity and beauty that nature has to offer. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for dolphins, rays, whales, and other exciting sea life! Whale sharks are slow-moving, filter-feeding carpet sharks found in tropical and warm-temperate seas. They are the largest extant fish species and, when fully grown, can weigh well over 20,000 pounds and reach lengths easily exceeding 30 feet. Though whale sharks are technically sharks, their behavior and anatomy do not resemble what many people think of (and fear) when they think of “sharks.” Like whales, whale sharks feed on plankton and other very small nektonic life. They are not aggressive and pose virtually no risk to human divers. Seeing a whale shark at any distance is stunning. A whale shark tour that allows you to be up close to one of these majestic animals is an experience you will remember for the rest of your life.
