The 2018 Wetpixel Whale Sharks trip is underway! Every year hundreds of whale sharks (Rhincodon typus) gather North of the island of Isla Mujeres, close to Cancun, Mexico.

Late Availability: Mexico Whale Sharks August 2018
We have a few spaces available on the 2018 Wetpixel Whale Sharks trip. It is running from 10 to 16 August and we will be based in comfortable accommodation at the Playa la Media Lune hotel on Isla Mujeres. Unlike most trips that run to see the sharks, our skippers are full time professional charter boat captains that spend the bulk of their time at seas looking for fish. We also tend to leave early and stay late, allowing us to maximize the crucial times when the sharks are relatively undisturbed by other parties.

June 8 is celebrated as World Ocean’s Day, an occasion to reflect on the global perils that threaten the health of the blue areas of our planet.

On 9 June there is a global March for the Oceans, an opportunity to unite and tell lawmakers that marine conservation matters. The March also calls for people to meet and carry out clean ups and other activities.
