CasaSandra, the luxury and artistic boutique hotel situated in Holbox Island, Mexico, introduces ‘The Art of Whale Shark and Fishing Experience" for the adventurous who are looking for the once in a lifetime thrill, without bypassing to the comforts of a luxury resort holiday.

Sandra Perez, founder of CasaSandra says: “Every year, from mid-June to mid-September, the largest aggregations of whale sharks in the world are found off the coast of Holbox Island, to feed on the waters rich plankton, krill and fish eggs: this is an amazing and still not well understood phenomenon, since whale sharks are usually considered solitary creatures."

These gentle sea giants," she continues, "have been playing an amazing role in the island’s life, and I thought to celebrate them by giving our clients the opportunity to learn about them through two locals – Don Victor and Doña Trinidad – whose families have lived in Holbox for generations.”

“It is an incredible phenomenon because it’s one of the few places on earth where the whale sharks are not in the deep, but rather on the surface of the ocean. When you swim with these enormous and magnanimous creatures, you experience all kinds of emotions: freedom, fear, and sense their great spirit and interior beauty. There is so much we can learn from these animals, attempting to become more like them.”

The Art of Whale Shark and Fishing Experience in Holbox holiday package includes, among other activities, a private fishing excursion with famous Holbox fishermen, to learn the tricks of fishing like a pro and experience an exclusive luxury picnic at Cabo Catoche, a tequila tasting hosted by a tequila master and a private dinner at the beach to admire the plankton light game.

Perez concludes: “In line with the Ser Collection’s philosophy, we want our guests to connect with the local environment, and I am sure adventurous travellers will love to learn about the whale sharks before meeting them in person”.

  • Private Air Transfer from Cancún
  • 2-night stay in a Suite Ocean or Master Suite (depending on availability)
