During the months of May through October, Holbox hosts the world’s biggest congregation of the whale shark–the largest fish on the planet. These majestic creatures, which can measure up to 15 meters in length, come every year to these plankton-rich waters to feed. Because of their extremely docile nature, it is possible to swim alongside these docile giants and observe them in their natural habitat. Swimming with the whale sharks is definitely an unforgettable experience.
We will be staying on Holbox, a small island in Mexico located off of the northern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. Famous for its large congregation of whale sharks, the enchanting island is the situated at the confluence of the currents from the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea, the waters surrounding Holbox Island are some of the most nutrient-rich waters of the entire region. As a result, the marine life of the island is as rich as it is diverse; from whale sharks and manta rays to dolphins, lobster, octopus, eagle rays and sea turtles.
