Snorkel with whale sharks in the beautiful blue waters of Mexico!  This is the perfect trip for photographers and families with scuba divers and non-divers alike. 

Adventure in comfort on a private charter boat as you swim alongside huge whale sharks.  Snack on delicious ceviche made fresh by the crew each day.

Spend your afternoons exploring Isla Mujeres, an island in the Caribbean Sea just off the coast of Cancun.  After each days’ adventures, relax on the private beach of our intimate oceanfront hotel.

SNORKEL WITH WHALE SHARKS

Spend 3 days swimming with these gigantic fish!  An experienced, in-water guide accompanies every pair of snorkelers.  Snorkelers take turns in the water throughout the day.  You will have time between snorkeling sessions to review your footage and photos, swap camera batteries and relax on board.

Private charters are limited to just 10 guests.  There is plenty of room to lounge onboard as you soak up the sun.

Enjoy a yummy sandwich lunch as you rest in between snorkeling sessions.  Munch on snacks and sip chilled drinks, all included with your charters. 

On the way back to shore each day we stop by a local reef to swim among the colorful corals and tropical fish. 

Top off every charter scooping fresh-made ceviche onto tortilla chips as we gaze over the ocean.

EXPLORE ISLA MUJERES

Discover the remains of an ancient Mayan temple in Punta Sur.  Photograph hatchlings and adult sea turtles at Tortuga Granja, the island’s sea turtle sanctuary.  Zip around the island on golf carts included with your reservation.

ON ISLAND ACCOMMODATIONS

After the charters, unwind on the private beach of our intimate oceanfront hotel.  Playa La Media Luna is nestled in the secluded “Half Moon Bay” on the northern tip of Isla Mujeres.  Sip drinks overlooking the ocean in one of two freshwater pools.  Treat yourself to on-site spa services.

In the evenings, take a short stroll to explore the myriad of shops and restaurants on the island.  Playa La Media Luna is just a 4-block walk from downtown.  The journey is made even quicker in your golf cart. 

After dinner, late night beachgoers may even observe mother sea turtles making their way up our private beach as they search for the perfect nesting location to lay their eggs.
