La Paz Whale Shark Snorkeling Tour and Lunch From Los Cabos

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Depart from your Los Cabos hotel in a plush, air-conditioned minivan and sit back during the scenic journey to La Paz; admire the undulating dunes and picturesque plains of the Baja California Sur desert, feasting on a fulfilling breakfast of peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches as you ride. 

    Arrive at La Paz, and don your professional wetsuit and snorkeling gear. Sail over the shimmering surface of the Sea of Cortez until you reach the natural habitat of the whale sharks. It won’t be hard to spot the enormous animals, whose size compares directly to a yellow school bus; however, don’t fear the 40-foot (12-meter) stature as whale sharks are considered the sea’s most gentle giants.

    Submerge yourself in the warm water with a supervised guide, and then marvel at the whale shark’s agile elegance in spite of their size. Follow the direction of your guide as you swim the waters near the natural habitat. Climb back on board for a refreshing rest and observe the water for manta rays, dolphins, and even humpback whales.

    Next, venture to the stylish Malecon, a blissful beachfront boardwalk, to pleasure your palate with crunchy tacos, refreshing soft drinks, and tangy tequila. Revitalized, stroll and enjoy the bespoke boutiques of the beach before setting out to explore the traditional town of Todos Santos.

    Visit the popular Hotel California, famed for its potential inspiration of the Eagle’s classic hit, and then return to your minivan for the relaxing journey back to Los Cabos.

    We ended up booking this excursion a bit last minute and caught one of the last days tours are permitted in the season. We were so lucky that we got to swim off and on for about 30 minutes with a baby whale shark! Everything with this tour was top notch from the guides

    Be ready to GO GO GO! Eric was an incredible guide and I could rave about him forever. The actually snorkeling with whale sharks was a lot more difficult than I expected, but it was an adrenaline rush and a lot of fun. A wonderful experience.

    My dream has always been to swim with a Whale Shark and Cabo Adventures did such a great job. We had the best tour guide named Alex who always made sure you knew exactly what was happening and felt safe and comfortable. He made sure everyone had their own intimate experience

    We were able to snorkel with the whale sharks and had an amazing time. We were staying in Cabo so it was a full day, but the staff were excellent and did a very good job on the bus as well as the activity itself. They were professional, the boat and bus were in great order.
