Do not miss the unique opportunity to swim the majestic yet harmless whale shark, the world's biggest fish species. While snorkeling around the impressive creature, you might even spot some graceful turtles, huge manta rays, or even dolphins.
Enjoy a light breakfast before leaving the island's central pier and heading to the open sea. During the 1- to 2-hour boat trip in the search of whale sharks, you might also encounter other fascinating marine life such as large manta rays jumping out of the water. Depending on their behavior, you could even take a swim near the manta ray.
Once you spot a whale shark, prepare your snorkel, mask, and fins to follow it through the water. The largest existing fish species, whale sharks can reach up to 46 feet (14 m) long and weigh up to 47,000 pounds (21.5 tons). Despite its intimidating size, the whale shark feeds mainly on plankton and is known to be harmless and non-aggressive, allowing you to approach it as you snorkel.
After the thrilling experience of swimming with a whale shark, head back to Holbox and stop in Cabo Catoche to snorkel with sea turtles, nurse sharks, lobsters, squids, and octopuses in the pristine waters. On the peaceful Santa Paula beach, enjoy a lunch of fresh ceviche prepared from the catch of the day before you return to Holbox.
