Whale Shark Adventures

Swimming with whale sharks is one of the most novel tourist attractions in Riviera Nayarit, Mexico. You can’t enjoy this water activity just anywhere, but the Port of San Blas, Nayarit, is one of those privileged spots.

The whale shark is the largest fish on the planet, measuring between 8 and 12 meters in length, feeding on plankton, crustaceans, and small fish. These fish migrate to the region from May through September, which is when you can enjoy an incredible vacation swimming with whalle sharks.

We recommend you take the tour to swim with the whale shark with Pipilas Tours, they’re the experts in this activity and know the area very well.

General recommendations:

  • You have to be careful with the tail; even though the sharks are not aggressive, their natural movements could hurt you.
  • You shouldn’t touch the sharks and much less try to ride them.
  • Although it seems easy to do, you need to go with an expert!

Along with swimming with whale sharks, the Riviera Nayarit offers plenty of other amazing vacation adventures. Check out our Water Activties page to discover other unique water things to do in Nayarit including a Cora Island tour near Rincon de Guayabitos.
