What to Expect

Your guide will lead you to the boat where you will be equipped with premium full snorkel equipment: mask, snorkel, fins and wetsuit. Life vest is optional in the water, mandatory during the boat ride.
Our experienced captain will search for whale sharks in the protected area, while your guide gives you a briefing about whale shark facts and biology, safety, and how to enjoy this activity with maximum respect for the environment and the marine creatures. Probably you will have to endure his /her many guide jokes too. Our guides are marine biologists or dive masters with deep love for the ocean and very knowledgeable, ready to answer all your questions.
Our guide will swim with you and the whale sharks taking videos and pictures that are included in your tour price. If conditions allow we prefer you jump only with your companions, not with other guests, so you have a more private and enjoyable experience. The number of times depends on the conditions, average is 3 or more jumps for every couple. The length of the water experience depends on the whale shark speed and your own personal fitness. Get ready to have a lot of fun!
