Whale Sharks in the Bay of La Paz

Whale sharks are the true “gentle giants” of the oceans. The largest fish on the planet, these gentle beasts return yearly to the coast just off La Paz. We meet early in the morning at the RED office to meet our guide and select snorkeling equipment. Our boat awaits close by, and will take us on the short trip to the area where the whale sharks come to feed. If you are lucky and feeling adventurous, grab your snorkel and mask and get in the water to see the whale sharks up close. Trip returns in time for lunch.

Optional Researcher for a Day: Learn what it is like to be a whale shark researcher! A local researcher will join your trip to take you through the ecology of these magnificent creatures, the role they play in the ecosystem, and their feeding, mating and migratory habits. Before getting in the water with the researcher you’ll learn how to identify individuals and document age, sex and other characteristics.
