Whale watching?

Has anyone done any or have any recommendations for a whale watching excursion in or around the Akumal area? When is a good month to see whales?

Whale sharks...not whales. They are part of the goldfish family.

June to Mid September. Tours out of Isla Mujeres and the Cancun area.

One example:

No whales around Akumal or the Caribbean

As CO_pilot mentioned, Whale Sharks only

But there are some great wild life tours in Sian Kaan

They all go to the same place ,

They have spotters ,

When one is spotted the whole fleet decends upon it .

This was my experience and I didn’t like it .

They told us if we never saw one we could have our money back .

Big mistake .

Was carnage .

The five hour trip back through a massive storm never helped .

The only fun bit was watching the captain trying to slip on his life jacket without anyone noticing.

And it cost a lump

I could go on

Good to know! Doesn’t sound that appealing now! Thanks for the info!
