About Ocean Tours
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)

Isla Contoy is a wonderful place. My tour was earlier today; I had no idea it was going to be THAT beautiful. This tour is very well organized. It's the little details that make the difference. The atmosphere on the boat was great, with music, dancing, and humor. Ocean Tours, if you're reading this: Give some sort of award to Pepe. He should be employee of the month or something. It takes a lot of talent to be able to keep everyone engaged and energized. Five stars, seriously.

This was incredible!!! One of the best tours and I would come back and do more tours with them in the future! Our captain guide was Gabriel and our photographer was Lucio with a tour assistant also named Gabriel. The team was great and guided us to snorkel and visit a cenote. The cenote seemed very private (we were the only group there) and the water was so clean and blue! It was an amazing time and the photographer took excellent photos of us. Most places just send generic photos but these photographers went the extra mile and took really special moments so we ended up getting the photos. 10/10 would recommend. Also very prompt arrival time as well! They arrived at 8:30 sharp at our Riviera Maya resort for pickup.

This was a great day trip! They texted us the day before to confirm pickup time; and they arrived right on time! All three places were very interesting and fun. Mariano (the tour guide) was very friendly, informative, and kept an eye o out for everyone the entire time. We got picked up at 8:20 and dropped off by 5:30. (Last year, we did the Chichen Itza tour which was awesome as well, but much longer day 6 am to 9 pm.) I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking to get off the resort for a day and see/do some fun things!!

Great experience! The guides made this beautiful trip unforgettable, they are very qualified and gave us lots of information about the nature, the animals and the importance to protect them....not to mention their impressive balance on the boat and dance skills under shaky conditions :) Thank you Vasil, Jorge and Joaquín! Next time we will book for sure again a Tour with Oceantours. Gracias, Spasibo, thank you, danke!

Ask for Chema! He was amazing, kind, patient, and knowledgeable. From the moment we were picked up, we had access to his insights into all the historical aspects of Tulums ruins, the coral reefs, and the cenotes. On top of his knowledge and passion for the local environment, he’s a cool dude! If I have a chance to come back to tour again I will definitely ask for his guidance! 100/100
