Tour Overview

From Fall to Spring, a remarkable phenomenon unfolds in the coastal waters of La Paz Bay as juvenile whale sharks gather in search of abundant nourishment. Driven by northerly winds, nutrient-rich waters from the Gulf of California converge into the shallow bay, giving rise to plankton blooms that create an irresistible feeding ground for these enigmatic, filter-feeding sharks. At Eco Migrations, we are thrilled to guide you into the captivating world of whale sharks.

Setting off from La Paz, we embark on a short and scenic boat ride to the Whale Sharks Protected Area. As we venture into its azure waters, our experienced guides scan the horizon, searching for the tell-tale signs of a shark swimming nearby.

Before your immersive encounter, we provide an introduction to the natural history of whale sharks, ensuring you gain a deeper understanding of their behavior, biology, and the significance of their presence in the bay. With clear instructions in hand, you’ll be ready to witness the awe-inspiring size and grace of these gentle giants as they effortlessly glide through the water.

Join us on this extraordinary journey and immerse yourself in the mesmerizing world of whale sharks. Book your adventure with us today and prepare to create cherished memories that will last a lifetime.
