Our Mexico Experience: Episode 2!!

Hi guys!

Finally it's here! Episode 2 of my trip to Playa in 2012!!!
Last year I posted episode 1 of our Mexico adventure.
This week I finally got around to finishing episode 2!

We made an unforgettable tour with the awesome people from
@oceantours! We went swimming with Whalesharks!!

I'm very happy with it, I hope you guys like it!

Let me know what you think! Leave a comment here or on youtube!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask,
I'll be happy to answer them!!

Also, for whalesharktours definately try Ocean Tours!
They are very professional and provide an awesome tour!

You can find them at Whaleshark Mexico | Swim With The Whale Shark

I'll try to speed up the pace of editing so I can post more often!
I don't know what comes next yet (need to look at the specific dates
and times, but I'll try to make it enjoyable to watch!!).

For now, watch (when you have time), like (if you do)
and share (if you want) this video!

Grtz,

Tim

@NorthernMN - Thanks so much for your positive comment! I'm glad you liked it! If you have the tour planned for next month you'll definately will be in for a treat! I recently had contact with the guys over at Ocean Tours and they told me this season will be awesome. The whalesharks are arriving even earlier than previous years and they arrived in large numbers! You will absolutely love it!

It's something so majestic and beautiful that it will stick with you for a lifetime! The tour in general is also so relaxed and laidback, but still impressive enough to even create the "wow" effect for the lunch at Isla Mujeres!

Have a great trip!!

What company did you book the tour with?

Grtz,

Tim

@SharonD - I'm so glad you liked it and it now kinda made your bucketlist!

I never had this on my bucketlist until I saw that it was possible to do when we were walking past an excursiondesk where they had a big picture of it! I'm really glad I made the decision to do it! Even though it was quite expensive, it was worth every dollar and even more!

And no worries, you can just put on a snorkel, you will get a lifevest or a wetsuit and you can admire these awesome creatures just like you would while snorkeling at a normal reef!

If you ever go and do it, please let me know, I'm so curious on how your experience was!

Grtz,

Tim

@MayanNut Thanks for the compliment! Always nice to see that other people enjoy the stuff I make!

And I'm sure someday soon you will get the chance to fulfill this bucketlist item! Whenever you're in the neighbourhood of Playa or Cancun, just go and do it!

Take care!

Grtz,

Tim

@himandeye Thanks so much for the compliment! All the positive comments really make my day!

I saw you guys were returning to Playa next month? I'm a bit jealous! I wish I could go every moment I had
a week to spare and money to burn, but unfortunately that's not the case at the moment!
I am working on a plan that will hopefully get me to Playa sooner and for a longer period, but first
I have to see if everything will work out in the way I had it planned in my head!

Anyway, have fun next month! Enjoy! If you haven't done the Whalesharktour yet.... DO IT!
It's a tour you will never ever forget!

What hotel are you guys staying in?

Take care!

Grtz,

Tim

We did the whale shark tour a few years back, we are waiting for the grand kids to get a little older (youngest is 5) before we go again. I dive and it is still one of my most spectacular adventures....They are majestic.

Yes, that is right, only snorkeling.

I did it when we stayed on Isla one summer. Amazing!

No one said they dove with them...

I made a leap from whale sharks to your comment about diving. 2 and 2 not equal 4, always.

I would enjoy diving with them. never have felt as comfortable snorkeling in choppy water.

Sorry for the confusion...we did SNORKEL with them! No diving necessary! I just assumed everyone understood my convoluted thinking!

Anyway you look at an awesome experience.
