Swim with an elite group for 4-days, in the warm waters of Mexico’s East Coast. Experience the largest numbers of Whale Sharks anywhere on Earth.


Go Ahead, Swim Into An Unforgettable Experience


Living till 100,  whale sharks filter feed 38kg of ‘little tunny’ and plankton everyday. A whale sharks daily diet is perhaps the largest consumption of caviar in the world. They exude an undeniable grandeur as they swim past with lengths reaching 20 metres (60 feet).

Exclusively catering to only 4 deluxe yachts once a year, each yacht seats no more than 6 people, to ensure you avoid the crowds.

With $15,000 USD per person twin share, it is an exclusive experience. You have in your team; Shawn Heinrichs, award-winning founder of Blue Sphere; National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen; National Geographic photographer Cristina Mittermeier and award-winning photographer Jim Abernethy; For an unforgettable romance in the wild, enquiries are welcome for booking out one of the four boats for 88,000 USD, perhaps an idea as a valentines gesture.

The ocean is brimming with these gentle giants during their migration. Allowing you to snorkel, interact with and swim beside numerous Whale Sharks over the few days.


Snorkeling with Whale Sharks in Mexico’s Waters


The entire trip from the moment you land, to the moment you leave is filled with utter luxury. Staying in the most scenic accommodation on the Isla of Mujeres, eating the freshest food and waking up to sweeping views of the water each morning.



Expect a private valè greeting you at Cancun Airport, who drives you to the Marina. From the Marina you will be accompanied by a Blue Sphere Associate and sail aboard your private yacht to the picturesque, Isla Mujeres. Having the afternoon to relax, you are soon followed up with an invitation to attend dinner with Founder Shawn Heinrichs.



The mornings are met with you being taken out by boat and then spending around 6-hours a day, exploring, basking in the Mexican sun and swimming with the many Whale Sharks.

When you’re immersed in the underwater world, you’ll surely encounter some, giant mobula rays, an absolutely harmless and gentle creature, playful and distinctly different to stingrays. Along with turtles, dolphins, sailfish, marlin and eagle rays.

Choosing to plunge into these luxurious few days, you are in fact turning your love of swimming with wildlife, into a charitable cause. One of the many causes is, the re-educatation of locals who would otherwise fish and kill these incredible creatures for commercial use.



Curator of this underwater escape, is a man who left his role as a CFO, Shawn Heinrichs. His work with Blue Sphere has seen the re-education of many local communities into cherishing these animals instead of slaughtering them. Improvements such as in Raja Ampat Indonesia, where there has been a 250% increase in marine life.

Understanding our world “is like a symphony, from the frozen arctic ocean to the deepest jungles of Central Africa, the whole world is singing, clicking, grinding, whistling and thumping” and by splurging a few thousand on a luxurious adventure, we can tick it off as a charitable good to our world. Tour Dates 2019 are July 13th – 17th.  enquiries
