  • I dint pursue a liscense, however, PADI certified instructors are available in Cancun. Just off Isle Mujeres and Holbkx. You could also look into certification at home prior to your trip. Sarah Leavitt 7 months ago

    Try learning to dive first, being totally comfortable in the water and able to stay neutrally buoyant. THEN find the whale sharks. 6 months ago

    Ningaloo reef Ian a great place to go from. Been there twice and saw multiple whale sharks. Also you can seen rays and other nice fish. Other attractions there are some good snorkelling and some small canyons.

    Had some friends do it from Cancun but they were out all day and didn't see one. 6 months ago

    I would suggest going to Donsol, in the Philippines. I went there 2 months ago and it was amazing. Although you might not get that perfect picture, you will be contributing to the ethical side of things. They don't feed the whale sharks here like in Cebu and it is a much better experience! I swan with two shales there!! :) There is always lots of great diving in the Philippines! 6 months ago

    The phillipines is a good place, but to learn to dive do it locally. Some other places their equipment can be a little iffy. Want to find local dive schools locally or other countries go to SSI, you can even do the on line sessions there for free. Some resorts offer at as part of your package to get open water (I did it this way in Jamaica ) or go one and one with dive master (did this at Red Sea in Eygpt ). 6 months ago
