Many tour operators will say that you can book a whale shark tour starting the 15th of May 2016, but the truth is that none of the tour operators from Cancun, Isla Mujeres, and Holbox can’t confirm that the Mexican government will release the permissions that exact day.

In past years, the permissions were released between May 15th and May 28th, so imagine all tourists who booked the tour from the 15th of May 2015, must reschedule if possible or ask for a refund.

Because this tour activity is getting more popular every year, the government is getting more strict with the tour operators.

The tours must be run according to the whale shark rules established by the CONAM and SEMARNAT, federal authorities for nature-protected areas, like the one, developed in past years for the arrival of the whale sharks.

All boats must pass the verifications of safety, and the staff must be certified by the federal institutions to get access during the season to the national park of the whale sharks.

The whale sharks Cancun tour is a must-do, on your vacations at this top beach destination.

We recommend you take the tour first weeks of June and for more probability of sighting more than 5 whale sharks, try to book in July and August.

The months of July and August, in general, are the warmest months of the year, and probably when more plankton is in the area, so more plankton more whale sharks for sure.
