Swimming With Whale Sharks in Baja California Sur
Few experiences in life can match swimming alongside the largest fish in the ocean.
There are only 14 places in the world where you can swim with whale sharks and Baja California Sur is where an encounter with these magnificent creatures is nearly guaranteed.
Whale sharks can be found every fall to early spring in the rich warm waters of the Sea of Cortez and in the Bay of La Paz.
Whale sharks are fish, not air breathing mammals and are the largest known species of fish growing to 50 feet and can weigh as much as 70,000 pounds.
Once plentiful in the waters of the world’s oceans, whale sharks are now an endangered species and protected under International and Mexican Law.
Several tour companies offer this incredible experience and are guided by qualified marine-life biologists.
As you head out on the waters in La Paz, other sea life such as whales, dolphins, and rays are often spotted. A full day tour can consist of spending time in La Paz as well as a drive over to Todos Santos.
It can also be the perfect end to a dive trip. Swimming alongside these filter feeding gentle giants as they glide along in their natural habitat is truly amazing.
When in Los Cabos, don’t miss this adventure of a lifetime!
