If no whale sharks are sighted during the trip you will be reimbursed 50%.
When there are less than 5 whale sharks and there are many boats, it will only be possible to see them from the boat as per regulations. This is to ensure the care of and respect for the whale sharks. We will continue searching to find more whale sharks so that you can experience swimming with these beautiful animals.
Alcohol is not permitted onboard and customers will not be able to bring your own alcohol on to the boat, as established in the 2014 Whale Shark Management plan.
