During the months from November to April, the whale shark congregates in an area near La Paz that we call Mogote. It is a sandbar that creates the perfect environment for a lot of plankton to gather and the whale sharks feed on. During the seasonal months we will take you swimming with these giants of the ocean. The swimming with whale shark in la Paz is done snorkeling in shallow waters, which is ideal to be able to swim peacefully without losing sight of him.
This is a highly regulated activity, which means only a select amount of boats has the government-issued permit to enter the Whale Shark area. For this reason, some tours might be operated directly by us, while others might be through a trusted third party (with no extra cost).
