If you ask most divers to produce their bucket list of fish-I-wanna-see, chances are “swimming with a Whale Shark” will be at the top. And while it’s an elusive goal for many, if you’d like to almost guarantee success, all you need to do is get yourself down to Isla Mujeres, an island off Cancun, where Whale Sharks congregate on a seasonal basis. Ken Kurtis has been guiding trips down to swim with these plankton-eating gentle giants for a number of years now and will share his experiences with you, as well as show you how you can do this on your own or as part of a group. And he’ll also highlight the other things to do while in this area, which include exploring the Cancun Underwater Museum as well as diving some of the cenotes over on the mainland. And because interaction with the Whale Sharks is a snorkel-only experience (mandated by the Mexican government), this is a seminar that will be of interest to divers and non-divers alike.
