We recommend you to be informed about the weather conditions of the days you will be here on vacations so you can pick the best to take the tour. This process is very easy now with your smartphone and all the apps to skip a rainy day.
The seasick is a common thing in the boats trips during the whale shark tour, as we go a little far from the shore, the sea can be little active with waves and wind and some people get dizzy easy so we recommend you to have this on mind and take precautions. Dramamine it’s an option but so are some natural teas like ginger tea or chamomile tea. Even if you don’t get dizzy easy, take some of this is better, and it’s a natural option.
