Your tour includes ground transportation to and from Cabo. On board our spacious sailing catamaran you will enjoy a light breakfast of fruit, yogurt and pastries as you set sail for the whale shark feeding area. After the captain’s orientation, your hostess, a marine biologist and snorkel leader, will share valuable information on the Sea of Cortez and pertinent details pertaining directly to whale sharks.


When the first whale sharks are spotted, guests will board one of our companion dive boats, in order to get up close and personal with these large and magnificent creatures. Boarding ladders allow easy access to and from the water. Your snorkel leader will typically enter the water first to assist guests as needed. Every guest wanting to swim or snorkel alongside a whale shark will be encouraged to do so. Fresh water showers are immediately available when re-boarding Island Cat, as are fresh laundered towels, shampoo, soaps, etc.


Once everyone has had their own personal experience with a whale shark, a delicious lunch of several prepared dishes will be served. Also included throughout the day are snacks, chips, salsas, guacamole, soft drinks, beer, bottled water, ice, and an open bar. Weather, and time-permitting, the sails will be raised for a dramatic return cruise to the resort at Costa Baja where guests will board our private ground transportation for their return trip to Cabo.


At guest request, your driver will stop at the mythological Hotel California, made famous by the Eagles popular song of the same name after which, you will be returned to your pick-up location.


Fruits and vegetables for the tour are sourced from local farms and delivered daily. There is organic chicken delivered daily and prepared on board in various ways, along with multiple side dishes. Snorkel gear, flotation vests, powered attendant boats, beach towels, layout mattresses, cushions and pillows are all included. (It is illegal to use our kayaks, paddle boards, or scuba equipment with whale sharks.)
