2 and a half hours north of Los Cabos is the city of La Paz. From October to April the beautiful tranquil bay of La Paz is home to a population of Whalesharks. They are the largest fish in the ocean and an awesome animal to swim with. They are a docile and placid shark: only feeding on microscopic sea life that live in the water. Like a big baseball glove the bay of La Paz collects this sea life as it moves with the currents of wind and ocean: here these marvellous fish come to feed for most of the year. It’s still much of a secret to visitors who land in Cabo but those who have discovered this tour can hardly believe it’s possible to interact so easily with these majestic animals just a couple of hours by car. It’s unforgettable.
