Your Whale Shark Tour – what do you need to know?

Yes, it is that time of the year again! We are happy to announce the start of the Whale Shark season on 24th of May!

But what do you need to know before going on your tour?

There are several things that need to be taken under consideration before joining a Whale Shark tour!
As a sustainable tour company we try to minimize the influence on the nature and the whale sharks. This is why we always operate in small groups and make sure that the customers who take their tour with us not only enjoy the tour, but also learn more about the whale sharks and preservation projects.

So, what do you need to take into consideration when you come to the tour?
Firstly, use a biodegradable sunscreen. We recommend that you put sunscreen in the morning while you are in your hotel. Then during the boat ride, we recommend to wear a long-sleeve cotton t-shirt to protect from the sun. After the interaction with the whale shark you can put sunscreen.
Take a pill to prevent getting sea sick. This is something really important, especially in the beginning of the season. There not that many whale sharks so searching for them can take up to 2 hours. We don’t want something like this to influence your experience, so that is why we recommend taking precautions.
Don’t eat breakfast before the tour! In your tour there is included breakfast and the breakfast is with appropriate food for the boat ride. We will also offer you Ginger tea, which is known for preserving people of getting seasick.

Once you are in the water, do not touch the whale shark! Touching the whale shark could be really irritating for the animal, and we do not recommend that.
Lastly, follow the instructions of your guide! All of our guides are also educated biologists who know what should be done and how!
We hope you enjoy an experience of a lifetime by taking the Whale shark tour !
