Isla Mujeres and her visitors are blessed once a year with arguably the world's most amazing opportunity to experience Whale Sharks in their natural habitat! Whale Sharks are actually fish — the largest in the world. From June to September hundreds of Whale Sharks gather just north of Isla Mujeres in a seven-mile radius to feed in the plankton-rich waters. A quick, but breathtakingly beautiful one-hour boat ride from the docks on Isla Mujeres will put you right within the territory where your trained guide will search out the Whale Sharks and offer you an experience you will never forget!
