Swim with a giant in Mexico
An underwater adventure

This is not to be missed

Swimming alongside the largest fish in the sea is one of the ultimate bucket-list experiences. At Isla Holbox, a small island largely untouched by tourism just off the tip of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, you can swim side to side with these gentle giants. At an average 40 feet long and 15 tons, the presence of these stately filter feeders is hard to ignore. This is a rare opportunity to have a close encounter with one of the most magical animals in a secluded, natural environment and one we promise you’ll never forget.
