The 2020 Whale Shark sighting season begins on July 1st and will end on September 15th, do not forget to follow the Whale Shark swimming rules to the letter. Use biodegradable products and be respectful of nature. In addition, you can observe flamingoes and at night swim in the glowing waters as you enjoy bioluminescence.
If you prefer to stay on the island you can take several tours, we highly recommend taking the classic tour of the island, in which the boat captains take you to visit the freshwater spring at Yalahau where the water sprouts from a Black Hole in the ground, passion isle is great for selfies and, birds island is a place to gaze upon the flying birds in their natural habitat.

If your plan is to visit the island from Cancun, Playa del Carmen or any part of the Riviera Maya for just one day, there are also several options to get there, such as private transportation and shared transportation from Playa del Carmen or Cancun, ADO bus departure schedules, as well as transportation with tours included, if you decide to make the trip on your own, you will have to arrive at the port of Chiquila and take the ferry that leaves every half hour from there, you can choose the Blue 9 Hermanos Fast Ferry or the red Holbox Express.
Avoid at all costs bringing or introducing coolers, Unicel, disposable, bags or any kind of single-use plastic, remember that you are entering an ecological reserve. In many hotels, you will find beach clubs with hammocks and lounge chairs and everything you need to enjoy a luxurious sunbathe. You can also rent a golf cart or a bike.
