Whale shark sightseeing tour is a “must do” when going to Cancún and Riviera Maya. Hundreds can still be seen, but each year whaleshark pupulation is getting reduced due to ilegal fishing. One day this tour will be forbidden, meanwhile we highly recommend it to you, don’t forget you can’t touch them and this is only a sightseeing tour.
