JUVENILE MANATEES

SPECIAL SIGHTSEEING ON WHALE SHARK TRIP

2017 WAS A VERY IMPORTANT YEAR AS WE WERE ABLE TO SEE FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER A SMALL GROUP OF JUVENILE MANATEES. THESE HAD NEVER BEEN OBSERVED BEFORE JUDGING FROM THE EXCITEMENT DEMONSTRATED BY THE CREW ON THAT DAY IN LATE AUGUST.

THE CREW HAS BEEN WITH US FOR MORE THAN 7 YEARS AND HAD “NEVER” SEEN THESE DOCILE ANIMALS. THEY WERE OBVIOUSLY JUVENILE AS FULL SIZE ADULTS ARE MUCH MUCH BIGGER. THE ADULTS ARE COMMONLY SEEN ON THE CARIBBEAN SIDE NEAR TO CHETUMAL NEAR THE MEXICAN/BELIZE BORDER.ANOTHER FIRST FOR CANCUN WHALE SHARK TOURS

Sail Fish Tours

CANCUN, Mexico, Dec. 13 2016/PRNewswire/ — Having earned a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor for the last four years, Cancun Sailfish Tours is pleased to offer a new snorkeling tour beginning January 15, 2017. Adventuresome travelers will enjoy swimming with the sailfish, otherwise known as the marlin, the speediest hunters in the ocean.

 

“We offer the most experienced and capable crews, the fastest, most powerful boats and the highest level of customer service in Cancun,” remarked Roddrigo Sidney, owner of Cancun Sailfish Tours. “We built our reputation with whale shark tours, and we plan to bring that same professionalism and expertise to our sailfish tours. Sterling reviews on TripAdvisor are a testament to the care and dedication we bring to every tour, every day.”

 

Cancun Sailfish Tours makes a strong effort to give every tourist a chance to snorkel with the sailfish, but wild animals like these are sometimes elusive. Therefore, no tour operator can absolutely guarantee that sailfish will be spotted on any particular day. Cancun Sailfish Tours does, however, boast an 80%-plus success rate at finding sailfish depending on weather & water conditions.

 

Sailfish tours are available as either VIP private tours or shared public tours. All tours include pickup from the major Cancun & Riviera Maya hotels and resorts. Private tours depart prior to any other tours, ensuring guests have the first chance to swim with the Caribbean’s most famous inhabitants – sailfish, Dolphins and manta rays. Families, professional photographers and ocean enthusiasts will appreciate the superior service and attention of a private tour.

 

Unlike most tour operators in the region, Cancun Sailfish Tours operates its own marina with private dock. Each tour begins with an orientation, safety briefing, and meet and greet with the crew. Tourists receive food and beverages, along with top-quality National Geographic Certified snorkel gear. Snorkeling with sailfish only requires basic swimming proficiency. To ensure safety and comfort, professional in-water guides are present at all times.

 

Getting to the ideal locations to spot sailfish takes about 60 to 90 minutes. Typically, sailfish spend their days on the hunt for baitfish like sardines. They “herd” these fish into swarming balls called “bolas” and pick them off by the mouthful. Experienced tour operators know that finding these bolas often means finding sailfish. Once on site, boats will stay in the area for at least 2 hours.

 

The whale shark tours for which the company is famous Cancun Whale Shark tours run from May 15 through September 17. However, it’s entirely possible to see whale sharks even during the winter sailfish seasonif any are still present after summer feeding season.

 

Preserving the majesty of the world’s oceans and the creatures that call its waters home is an important part of the mission at Cancun Whale Shark Tours. The company is a founding member of the Whale Shark Conservation Society, an organization dedicated to the conservation of ocean-going species like whale sharks, manta rays, sea turtles and sailfish.
