"Swimming with whalesharks" Top 5 Page for this destination Isla Holbox Off The Beaten Path Tip by csarah

Isla Holbox Off The Beaten Path: 10 reviews and 4 photos


Our captain took some pictures when we were in the water swimming with the whalesharks. Whalesharks sightings are very rare despite their huge size. They swim just under the water surface and mostly in the very deep and open ocean. There are only very few places were they visit the more shallow waters and if they do so it is usually near a big coral reef to find their food .
If you look closely you will get a limp of the big mama whaleshark we met here!
