Keen M Blue Water Encounters Experience

Join us for an unforgettable adventure in Isla Mujeres, where you’ll have the chance to swim with the gentle giants of the sea – the magnificent whale sharks! You’ll be joined by Jessica, a visiting scientist and Guy Harvey Foundation representative, who will guide you through this incredible experience.

Throughout the week, guests will rotate between boats, each led by Capt. Anthony Mendillo and the GHF rep. You’ll be fitted with wetsuits and snorkeling gear, so all you need to bring is your sense of adventure! At the end of each day, Capt. Mendillo and the GHF rep will confirm attendance and make any necessary changes to the roster.

Guests will have the opportunity to share their experiences and provide testimonials, which will be filmed during happy hour or at a designated interview location. On designated days, you’ll also have the chance to participate in educational presentations and fun games before dinner.

As a special treat, guests will take turns being seated with the GHF staff at dinners every evening, giving you the chance to get to know our team and learn more about our mission.

In addition, a sponsored GHF intern or volunteer will be on hand to assist with various aspects of the expedition and share their experience with their peers at the end of the trip.

And the adventure doesn’t stop there! Approximately one month after the expedition, you’ll receive a summary video of the entire experience, allowing you to relive your incredible journey and share it with your friends and family.

Don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to swim with whale sharks and support the important conservation work of the Guy Harvey Foundation. Book your expedition today!
