Don't miss out on your chance to swim with these giants and book your tour now!
The Yucatan Whale Sharks are a favorite among many whale watchers. This is one of the popular travel adventures in Mexico and the Riviera Maya and definitely makes for a great experience.
If you're an animal and nature lover, and at the same time a traveler, then whale shark watching might be the perfect adventure for you. There are many places around the world to go Whale watching, but one of the perfect places to visit is Yucatan.
You'd think the best description that fits a whale shark is this: A mouthful of teeth and a stomach that is constantly hungry. even though that sounds morbidly appropriate it has nothing to do with the truth. In fact, whale sharks are very different from other shark species in terms of diet.
Whale Sharks are known as filter-feeders. They eat primarily plankton, macro-algae, red crab larvae, krill, small nektonic vertebrates, squids, and small fishes. A whale shark has a very unique oral anatomy which allows it to gulp in water, filter for food, and expulse the water through its gills.
During the summer months from the middle of May until the middle of September in the crystal waters off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, whale sharks are one of the main attractions for many tourists and nature lovers.
These majestic underwater giants can be seen off the coast of Cancun, Isla Mujeres, Isla Contoy and Isla Holbox, where they come in search for food during the migration period of plankton, which is their main source of nutrition. This is a fantastic opportunity for the tourists, who can swim and snorkel alongside these while they are feeding on plankton and algae behemoths.
Whale Shark Season has officially started since last week when the sharks were first spotted by plane. Whale shark tours are going out every day now from Holbox. Probabilities of finding and swimming with the animals are 95% in good weather conditions.
