COVID-19 Vaccination & Testing Requirements for Swimming With Mexico's Whale Sharks Trips
This information applies to all Swimming with Mexico's Whale Sharks trips.
To Join Your Trip:VACCINATION
Nat Hab requires all guests 5 and older to be fully vaccinated in order to participate. Fully vaccinated guests should upload their vaccination card to their Adventure Portal prior to departure.
No pre-trip test is required by Nat Hab for fully vaccinated guests to join their trip. All Nat Hab guests are required to test negative on a COVID-19 test, which Nat Hab will facilitate, at the start of their trip. Before you depart, we also recommend taking a COVID-19 test. After all, no one wants to travel halfway around the world and then test positive! Please note that you are responsible for knowing the requirements in place for any countries you are transiting through en route to your trip destination.
During Your Trip:TESTING
To increase safety on our trips and reduce the risk of possible COVID-19 exposure, Nat Hab will be facilitating a rapid antigen test on Day 1 of your adventure prior to meeting the group. Your Expedition Leader will provide more details upon arrival. This will be at no additional cost to you.
TO RETURN HOME
Starting June 12, 2022, a negative COVID-19 test to re-enter the U.S. is no longer required. If you were charged for this test along with your final balance, you will be refunded. This government mandate is reevaluated every 90 days. If you require a COVID-19 test for your home country or onward travels, we will be happy to help direct you towards online resources for obtaining the required test, though you will need to arrange and pay for the test on your own.

Some airlines, depending upon the country you are departing from and/or the country you are connecting through, may require a COVID-19 test prior to your flight’s departure. Please be sure to research your airline’s requirements for your specific flight routing. If you will require testing, please let our Adventure Concierge team know prior to departure so they can direct you to online resources to book your own test.
We also recommend double-checking your on-board mask requirements with the airline you are using to travel abroad.
EXTENDING TO ANOTHER COUNTRY
If you have booked an extension through Nat Hab to another country, Nat Hab will facilitate any testing required for entry into that country. Please see your extension itinerary for specific details.
