To assure each person can swim with or watch the whalesharks, there are a handful of men in boats that feed the whalesharks buckets of krill so that they arrive each day. It was chaotic and incredible at the same time as there are many...More

This was the second time for us. There are no words to describe swimming with these amazing creatures. The organisation is good and the price fair. This activity provides an income for so many local people in the surrounding area. I will keep coming to...More
