Your guide will pick you up in an accessible van, directly from your hotel in Cancun, around 07:45. After a 30-minute journey, you will arrive at the Marina. Travelers in a wheelchair will be assisted to get from the parking lot to the pier. Breakfast will then be served as you get a short introduction to the whale sharks. If you decide to wear a wetsuit, now will be the time to get changed. You will then board the boat.
Members of staff will assist you with changing and carry your wheelchair onto the boat if needed. After about a half-hour sail towards the deep water, you will start your search for whale sharks. Once the whales are located, enjoy a unique opportunity to snorkel alongside them, about 5 minutes at a time. 2 members of staff will assist as travelers get into and out of the water. 1 guide will then assist with the snorkeling session at all times.
Later on, you will head to the coast of Isla Mujeres, where guacamole and ceviche will be served for lunch.
Around 1:30 pm, you will make your way back to the marina, to then get transferred back to your hotel.
