See Whale Sharks in Socorro Islands, Mexico

North America

Flipping to the west of Mexico, the Socorro islands (or Revillagigedo Islands) can be found 385 kilometers south and west of Cabo San Lucas.

Nicknamed “Mexico’s Little Galapagos,” the depths surrounding these isles do not disappoint for divers. A dip in the waves here offers sightings of humpback whales, giant manta rays, and dolphins, as well as fan-favorites, whale sharks. Whale sharks arrive here in May and can be found swimming the waters until December.

If you’re traveling to Mexico’s west coast out of Socorro’s whale shark season, you can swap the islands for La Paz, on the southern tip of Baja California. Dubbed “The World’s Aquarium,” whale shark season here is October to April, with the best sightings in November.
