World Class Whale Shark Encounters
July and August, whale sharks migrate to the tip of the
Yucatan Peninsula and form the largest whale shark
aggregation ever recorded.
Isla Mujeres is the perfect staging point for trips to the
whale shark feeding grounds because it is easily accessible,
close to the sharks and surrounded by warm blue water that
make whale shark encounters that much more enjoyable and
your images that much more spectacular!
Because Isla Mujeres is a pit stop for many other large
pelagic species (as well as enormous whale sharks) it is
sometimes possible to jump in with manta rays, sailfish and
schooling golden rays. This is a destination that really

Because the whale sharks spend much of their time feeding at
the surface, there is no need for us to use scuba which
creates so much drag that it is tough to keep up with the

Why come with Big Fish Expeditions?
There are many operators that offer whale shark encounters
once you get to the island. But, if you head out on a
regular trip you'll get three jumps with the sharks that may
only last a few minutes and then you'll be heading back to
shore. If you'd rather spend hours out in the whale shark
grounds and then sail directly back to your beachfront hotel then
join me for the whale shark encounter of a lifetime!

from this year's whale shark expedition guests:
In the deep blue sea and whale sharks
everywhere - it was a snorkel adventure of a life time,
totally thrilling! Andy's strategy for getting us quality
time with these amazing fish was the essence of our success.
The trip was just plain wonderful. Great photos, amazing
videos, and new friends. Thanks again Andy!

I had an amazing time on your expedition
and have to say it was one of the best vacations I've taken!
Being in the water so close to the whale sharks (and with so
many of them) has definitely been one of the coolest things
I've been able to experience! Thanks so much for organizing!

This was the first of 3 bookings I've made
with Andy and bigfishexpeditions.com and it certainly turned
out to be a safe bet, so I keenly look forward to the next
two. I've only had one brief encounter with Whale sharks
before and so I was a little concerned as to whether we
would find any on the 4 day trip or indeed how long the
encounters would be. Well I need not have worried, Day one
consisted of whales sharks for 6 hours and if I had gone
home after that day I would have been content with the trip,
however day 2 (albeit a little slower) and day 3 were also
good days but day 4 surpassed even day 1 and the sea was
awash with whale sharks, so many that you didn't know which
way to turn. I have hundreds of pictures as well as video
footage which I'm still trying to go through.
In terms of what the trip promised, it certainly surpassed
my expectations. Andy organised the trip well, he is a very
likable and laid back individual who is obviously very
passionate about what he does and very knowledgeable about
the subject. The hotel was located in a prime spot on the
beach requiring just a short paddle from the breakfast area
to the awaiting boat. Would I go again? yes I certainly
would, however I have other places and subjects to
experience first so whale sharks will have to wait for a
while. Would I recommend this trip? yes definitely and have
done so to my friends already! Andy you're going to need a
bigger boat!! :)
