Cabo Catoche is the point in which the Yucatan Peninsula turns west, from the caribbean to the gulf of Mexico. In this same waters, 60 miles north of Cancun, a series of seamounts erupt from the ocean floor up to 65ft. The reef on this mounts is pristine and healthy, very few divers/fishermen reach this remote location!
The specific mixture of rich gulf waters and the warm caribbean waters attracts giant mantas to the seamounts where they lay on the floor and let themselves be cleaned by fish.
However, the balance between both ocean bodies acting together is delicate, and only during the months of september, october and november is the water rich enough, warm enough and clear enough to make it worth the long boat ride to this spot.
All is rewarded when you jump in with 15 mantas around you! unlike the mantas encountered during the whale shark season close to Contoy Island, here we use tanks, therefore making the experience much more intimate.
Due to the 60 mile crossing, good weather is mandatory and exact dates are revealed as soon as we have a good forecast.
Pricing run individually for 275usd or full boat charter for 2250usd. 9 divers maximum.
