The pick-up in Tulum for the snorkeling tour swimming with the whale sharks in Mexico takes place at the lobby of your hotel if it is located in town, otherwise, if you stay in the hotel zone the pick-up will be downtown in the parking lot of the San Francisco-Bancomer shopping mall at 5:30 a.m. It’s a very easy place to find, you will need to take a taxi from your hotel to that place where our driver will be waiting for you. We will take you from there to a place near Cancun about 2 hours away called Puerto Juarez where our private marina is and where our boats are docked.

You will be back at your hotel after the swimming with whale sharks tour from Tulum or Akumal by 4 p.m. depending on the weather conditions. After the excursion swimming with the whale sharks and before going back to the marina we go to the reef in Isla Contoy or Isla Mujeres to snorkel for about 40 minutes.
