Swimming with Whale Sharks

La Paz

Snorkel alongside the world’s largest fish!

Swim alongside the largest fish in the world! At around 30 feet long, these giants of the sea may look imposing, but they’re actually gentle, filter-feeders that aren’t dangerous toward divers. Your Cabo Expeditions tour guide will take you on an amazing, up-close encounter with enormous whale sharks as they slowly glide through the water in search of the tiny plankton and krill that they feed on. Gently and slowly swimming near the surface, these docile creatures will allow you to approach them without risk!
