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

Live a truly experience of a lifetime on small groups of 5-7 people maximum (regular tours take around 15 people per boat), avoiding big crowds and long waitings 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 gopro pictures and videos of the tour, which we will send to you digitally 2 days after the tour day.

The duration is aproximate 2-2.5 hours, this depends on how far or close we find the whale sharks. Please note that during high season (Thanks giving, Christmas and Spring Break) there can be a waiting line in order to enter the whale shark area of aprox 1-2 hours.
