Whale Shark snorkeling at La Paz guided by a local marine biologist

Live a truly experience of a lifetime on small groups of 5-8 people maximum (regular tours take around 15 people per boat), avoiding big crowds and long waiting prior to swim with whale sharks.

Just a few minutes away from the city of La Paz, you will search, see and swim with one or various whale sharks, guided by a local marine biologist which will introduce you to the specifics of the species and also record with a go pro pictures and videos of the tour, which we will send to you digitally 2 days after the tour day.

The duration is approximate 2-3 hours, this depends on how far or close we find the whale sharks and also which turn we get prior to enter the whale shark area. Please note that during high season (Thanks giving, Christmas and Spring Break and long weekenfs) there can be a waiting line in order to enter the whale shark area of aprox 1-2 hours.
