WHALE SHARK TOURS - whaleshark divers

The clue is in the name! Between December and May, whale sharks linger just a stone’s throw away. These gentle giants tend to stay in three different regions; regions which we have been instrumental in protecting. On principle, and also due to the regional authorities, no diver is authorized to dive in these areas with equipment. Snorkeling, on the other hand, is by all means permitted and it is more than impressive on account of the shallow depths in which the biggest fish on the planet can be found.

A number of dive sites are located a stone’s throw away from the protected areas, giving you a good chance of encountering one of these creatures yourself during the dive. At this point we would like to remind you that you must not touch these peaceful creatures, pull them along with you or carry out any other act which might disturb the animal.
