If you’re an avid snorkeler, you won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to snorkel with one of the Caribbean’s most fascinating marine animals at Dreams Cancun Resort & Spa. Throughout the summer months, Whale Sharks are found off the coast of Holbox Island near Quintana Roo. During a snorkeling excursion these awe-inspiring animals rise to the surface providing sightseers the opportunity to view them in their natural habitat.
Whale Sharks are the world’s largest living fish; they are considered harmless and are generally curious around humans. Stretching over 14 meters, the Whale Shark swims slowly near the surface of the water consuming small fish and plankton. The Whale Shark is found in tropical and subtropical oceans and along coastal regions, entering lagoons on tropical islands.
If you’re planning to visit us soon at Dreams Cancun, stop by our activities desk and they will be happy to help you arrange a Bluewater Snorkeling adventure with the premier tour and adventure provider, Solo Buceo. The excursion leaves at 7 am from the Dreams Cancun pier and takes guests nearly 12 miles off the coast of Cancun in search of the Whale Sharks. Guests who go on the snorkeling excursion also have the opportunity to see other marine animals such as sailfish, dolphins, false killer whales and silky sharks. Get your underwater cameras ready because you’re in for an adventure of a lifetime!
