Swim and snorkel with the largest fish in the world! Huge (30 feet long!) and benign, whale sharks are truly gentle giants. They’re filter feeders, not hunters, so swimming and snorkeling with whale sharks is safe with Cabo Expeditions to guide you.

From the quiet seaside town of La Paz on the Sea of Cortez, we’ll take you to a magical encounter. You’ll never forget this La Paz attraction that stands out among things to do in and around Cabo.

An awesome, close-up encounter awaits you with your Cabo Expeditions tour guide. As the whale-sized fish glides slowly through the water in search of plankton, you’ll be at their side. Swimming gently and slowly near the surface, these docile creatures allow you to approach them without risk.

You’ll close out the day’s adventure with a quick stop in the small, beautiful city of Todos Santos, known for its excellent surfing and quaint streets with wonderful, unique shops. (Note: You will be back in Los Cabos around 8:30 p.m. Please take this into consideration when making dinner plans for the day of your tour.)

The whale sharks of La Paz, Mexico attract researchers, as well as snorkelers. Take a good photo of a whale shark, and send it to the Wildbook for Whale Sharks, an international scientific database!
