About
Come explore the incredible world of the whale shark and enjoy the experience of a lifetime with the Whale Shark Discovery. The Whale Shark conveys peace and tranquillity; swimming alongside this gentle giant of the sea is an experience to remember and share again and again. The Whale Shark migrates each year between May and September, so if you are planning to The Mayan Riviera (Playa del Carmen, Cancun or Tulum) during these months, don't miss the incredible opportunity to swim with the Whale Sharks and take home an experience that you will talk about and share with everyone! Whale shark watching can be done by booking a guided tour. No matter where you are staying, transportation / pick up will be organized for you (from Playa del Carmen, Cancun or Tulum)

Such an amazing adventure this trip was. Nadia our guide was incredible, she was very informative, kept us updated on the schedule of events and had us feeling comfortable at all times. Abelardo our driver had us all over town, at sites he would stay behind with the vehicle including our belongings, again felt comfortable knowing they were safe.
Ralfael our photographer took amazing photos capturing moments that will last forever . He also assisted along the team.
Aaron the trainee was more of a guide as well, he was very knowledgeable like Nadia at all sites. Aaron also kept us updated on sites keeping the group together. This team of 4 was the best, we were extremely fortunate to have all 4 together. Definitely a trip to remember by far the best experience of Cancun trip. It was hard to leave at the end of the day. This team’s hospitality definitely was unlike anything I’ve experienced. Thank you Nadia :)

This tour was lovely! We started off at Tulum and learned a LOT from our OT guide, Sofia. Then off to snorkel with the turtles. The water visibility wasn't great because of recent rough water but we still got to see several turtles, Starfish, pufferfish and Tang. Our last stop was one the cenotes at Xtum. This tour was SO much more than I expected!! Sofia knew the underground terrain like back of her hand and was so knowledgeable! I would definitely do this tour again!!

Our adventure day with Ocean Tours was over the top! Our guide, Jorge, provided our small group with all of the necessary knowledge and had a great attitude. The snorkeling experience in Akumel Bay was amazing and even though the conditions weren’t perfect, we were still able to see 3 beautiful sea turtles, a yellow sting ray, and several species of fish. The second part of the tour was spent at an underground cenote called Xtun Cavernas. This magical place contained some amazing caverns, stalactites, and stalagmites. Jorge explained how the caves were formed and their importance to the local culture. The surrounding beauty, both above and below the water’s surface, was spectacular. While we were touring Xtun, the locals cooked up some tasty empanadas, and we wrapped up the tour with an enjoyable slide show of the day’s activities and a snack. The photographer, Guillermo, captured all the action and allowed us to focus on the fun. A reasonable priced photo package of $40 USD could be purchased at the end of the trip. Our driver, Julio, was prompt and professional and got us to every destination safely. If you want to make great memories on your next vacation to the Riveria Maya, then definitely book yourself a trip with Ocean Tours!

This was the best tour I have ever been on. Not only were the Tulum ruins, snorkeling, and swim tour through the cenote/caves incredible, but our guide was the best. Raphael, was super knowledgable and endearing and happily fielded all kinds of questions from the group on our tour. He cultivated a sense of team (We are Rafapeople!) and stayed totally calm and cool navigating the needs and desires of the other tour guests, tour guides, and taxi drivers. We had just enough time at each part of the tour. The food was really good too.

Trust their photographer! I was skeptical, but the photos that he took of my boyfriend and I on the beach, snorkeling, and in the cenote are the best photos I have of us and it cost $40 for all the photos. Highly recommend. I only wish we had made more of an effort to pose for him.

If you get car sick I recommend taking some sort of motion sickness medication because the back of the van has very little view and the road to the cenote is a very bumpy dirt road. I had booked just the day before and the company was super communicative via whatsapp and they picked us up at our hotel in Playa del Carmen.

My husband and I took this tour with Caesar (like the salad). We loved all the stops, but our favorite was swimming in the underground cenote. Caesar was a fantastic guide, and everyone had a blast! I would definitely recommend taking this excursion!

I'm glad to hear that you and your husband enjoyed your tour with Caesar! Cenotes are amazing natural wonders and swimming in one is definitely a unique experience. It sounds like you had a great time and that Caesar was a fantastic guide. I'm sure anyone who takes this excursion will have a blast as well. If you have any recommendations for specific cenotes to visit or activities to do on the tour, feel free to let me know and I would be happy to help!
