To make sure that you have the best whale shark experience possible we make the following recommendations:
Avoid having a hangover the day of the trip, we’ll reward you with a cold one at the beach after the tour!
Take a Dramamine pill the night before and the morning of the trip. We provide them for you in case you forget.
Bring an underwater camera and a floating handle, or rent one from us!
Wear a long sleeve swim shirt, hat, and/or reef friendly sunscreen.
Arrive to the marina 15 minutes before your trip is scheduled. It is better to be one of the first boats to the site to make sure we maximize your face to face time with these gentle giants.
Remember: Swimming with the Whale Sharks is an adventure activity, just like Deep Sea Fishing or Scuba Diving. We are visiting these creatures in their natural habitat, and there is absolutely no way to predict how far, how many, or where these wild creatures are each morning. Many elements, such as the brightness of the moon, amount of rain the night before, ocean currents, etc. determine what we encounter from day to day at the whale shark site. The most important thing to assure that you have the best experience possible is to go with a reputable company like us, who has professional captains and responsible guides that will inform you of any predictable weather and whale shark conditions a week before your scheduled tour, which allows time to reschedule or cancel, and who will also get you up close and personal with the whale sharks, while still respecting their migratory patterns.
