Would you dare to swim with whale sharks? Dive into the sea off the coast of La Paz and snorkel with the largest fish in the world: an unforgettable experience!

Swimming with Whale Sharks in La Paz

Meet at Marina CostaBaja at 12 pm on the day of your tour, where you'll get kitted out ready for your unique marine adventure off the coast of the Mexican city of La Paz.

Once you've got all your equipment and have had a safety briefing from your expert guides, you'll climb aboard a speed boat and set sail to the perfect swimming spot, not far from the coast. Here, you'll dive into the waters of the Gulf of California where you'll snorkel alongside whale sharks, the largest species of fish in the world!

Spend approximately one hour in the sea admiring these incredible sea creatures up close: they can reach up to 40 feet (12 metres) in length and are believed to have existed over sixty million years ago! Will you pluck up the courage to swim alongside the enormous whale sharks? 

Having made the most of this experience of a lifetime, you'll return to dry land to enjoy a well-earned buffet lunch of delicious traditional foods including fresh fish tacos, pasta and salads... bon appetit! 

After eating, you'll make the return journey to the original departure point in La Paz, where your activity will come to an end.
