    Yesterday, Sol & I went on a tour with the event director at Hotel Esencia to swim with whale sharks in the Caribbean ocean...

    I dont have the exact info for the tour as I didnt set it up, but wanted to share the experience so everybody can visualize exactly what is in store for this amazing day of adventure.

    Boats leave from Punta Sam (north of cancun a tad), Isla Mujeres, or Isla Holbox (the longest amount of traveling). This is the 2nd time we have done this tour. Click the image to open in full size.

            no touching actually....

            They grow 70 feet or more, these ones were in the 50 foot range... just as long as a tractor trailer truck, can u believe that?

            If you are in the RM during June 1 - Sept 15, you should plan a tour with them, for sure!

            thanks for commenting :)
