Although whale sharks may be found almost year round near La Paz, current environmental legislation only allows us to look for them between October 1st and April 30th. This is when there is most food around and the number of sharks present is higher, therefore reducing the disturbance to each creature. We love going to see the whale sharks and feel very privileged that the biggest fish in the world can be found here. This excursion takes places on a panga and is designed to get you up close and personal with these amazing animals. We run small, customised trips to allow you to make the most of your experience. Cat will tell you all about them and guide you in the water and Norm will get you in the right spot! For more information about these amazing fish read the blog post I wrote here
A trip to see the whale sharks generally lasts 2-3 hours thus giving us plenty of time to find them and also spend some time in the water. This excursion can be made into a day trip with a visit to snorkel at a sealion colony and also include lunch on a beautiful beach. Let us know the type of trip you would like and we will organise a great day for you.
All of our trips are private for your group.
