This summer, as many as 1,400 whale sharks, the world’s largest species of fish, are anticipated to migrate through Cancun’s warm coastal waters. During whale shark season, JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa and CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort are offering travel deals and whale shark excursions, making this bucket-list experience more accessible.
Daily whale shark excursions are arranged through the resorts’ concierges and depart by boat from a nearby marina; participants set off on a full-day, expert-led journey to find and swim alongside endangered whale sharks in the wild.
