About Ocean Tours
Come explore the incredible world of the whale shark and enjoy the experience of a lifetime with the Whale Shark Discovery. The Whale Shark conveys peace and tranquillity; swimming alongside this gentle giant of the sea is an experience to remember and share again and again. The Whale Shark migrates each year between May and September, so if you are planning to The Mayan Riviera (Playa del Carmen, Cancun or Tulum) during these months, don't miss the incredible opportunity to swim with the Whale Sharks and take home an experience that you will talk about and share with everyone! Whale shark watching can be done by booking a guided tour. No matter where you are staying, transportation / pick up will be organized for you (from Playa del Carmen, Cancun or Tulum)

This tour was amazing! Our tour guide was Alexa and our driver was Arturo. They were so energetic, friendly, sweet, professional and fun! We were promptly picked up at Secrets Akumal. We stopped by for a quick group photo at the "Tulum" sign. We then headed to the Ruins for an amazing tour! It was scorching hot! There is hardly any shade so be prepared with plenty of water and an umbrella if possible. We then drove close by for snorkeling! It was my parent's first time and they really enjoyed it! My mom was really nervous about it at first and there was a sweet boat captain/co-captain that stayed with my mom the entire time. Giving her guidance and support... amazing! The water was a little too choppy for my taste, I'm not sure how kids would have enjoyed because it was tough for me. Lastly, we went to the cenote, my favorite part! So amazing, magical and refreshing!!!! We wrapped up with a late lunch which was delicious! Overall, amazing tour and worth the price!

From the moment we were picked up, to the end of the day when we were dropped off after swimming with whale sharks, snorkeling and relaxing and eating lunch in the beautiful clear blue water, we were treated wonderfully by all of the staff. Our guide Ruben Reide was so knowledgeable about the whale sharks, reefs, fish, locations, and equipment. He had such a funny personality! Had everyone laughing alot. Juan, Renato and the captain Rebe were helpful to everyone as well. They treated us to a wonderful lunch and made sure we were safe on the boat as well. The driver of the transportation Ruben was on time and the vehicle was clean and cool. Supplied us with nice cold water. I would 100% recommend this excursion. It was hands down my favorite excursion.

Our tour guides were Cristina and Lea. They were such a delight to have. Very informative and helpful. My friends and I were with a small group. Most of the tourists didn’t know how to swim. Throughout every water activity, they made sure we were all safe and kept a close watch over us. When we went snorkeling, the boat came to pick us up. We did not have to swim to the boat like most snorkeling activities require you to. We saw sea turtles, sting rays, and other fish. They had a great photographer with them to capture the excursion. Prices were pretty reasonable, photos came out great. They took us to a beautiful Cenote. The water was cold but great for the hot day we were having. Tulum was very hot, and they had umbrellas for us to use. After a giving us a tour of Tulum, we had 25 mins of free time. Snacks were handed after we were left Tulum. Lunch was served before we went to the Cenote. Cristina and Lea were just absolutely wonderful to have. You will have a great time with them.
