WHALE SHARK IN HOLBOX
The island of Holbox is a point of convergence of the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea, and between the months of May to September it is home to the largest fish in the world: the whale shark (Rhincodon typus). This giant of the ocean feeds only on plankton, and for this they filter it through its mouth. Entering the water, and discovering that you are swimming next to a fish that can measure up to 20 meters, is a true rush of adrenaline, and it is wonderful!
The duration of this tour is almost all day, and has the necessary equipment included. We have seen dozens of sharks at a time, and sometimes only one or two; Nature has its own schedule. Then, a stop on the beach of Santa Eulalia, where mangroves await you with fresh ceviche made by their captain.
This is an exceptional contemplative activity. More than 150 bird species living in the same habitat and a totally mystic natural river on the other side of the riviera, are some of the attraction you will enjoy during your visit to the prodigious Bird Island, Passion Island and Yalahau cenote.
The nearshore fishing is common in this fishermen island. Most of the barges in the island are destined ti the commercial fishing, but some fishermen complement their incomes working as private guides. Even though we provide the fishing tools, the fisherman already has his marks, he knows them after a lifetime experience, so you wont need GPS. The preferred technique is the hand line fishing. It is simple, exiting and provides more clues about the prey than any other equipment.
Even though Holbox is not among the most famous places in the world for this kind of fishing, it has a grate potential to practice this sport. There are several guides in the island with the necessary equipment,knowledge, charisma and practice to deliver an unforgettable experience. The mature tarpon migrate using non deep waters, bays and mangroves; the common snook, sea trout, shad, pompano and black salmon can be found during the whole year. Is in Cabo Catoche where fishing lovers can enjoy this practice.
Watching the sunset is always a relaxing and unique moment. From the beach, with the feet in the sand and the breeze on the face, the spectacle, more than watched, can be touched. During this experience you could taste an appetizer and enjoy a sparkling wine, while you feel the singular magic of the Holbox's sunsets.
