Swimming with Whale Sharks, San Blas Nayarit | Mexico Vacations

Go Swimming with Whale Sharks in Nayarit!

Have you ever wanted to go swimming with whale sharks? This is one of the most novel tourist attractions all of Mexico. You can’t enjoy this 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 fish. These whale sharks migrate to the Nayarit region from May through September, which is when you can go swimming with whale sharks.

We recommend you book a tour with Pipilas Tours in San Blas since they are the experts in this activity and know the area 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 should only swim with whale sharks accompanied by an expert!
