    Absolutely amazing experience! Only wish we could have more time in water with whale shark... The guide only brings 2 people to water each time, so every 2 people get 2 rounds to see whale shark. We see Mantarays as well, fascinating!! BRING YOUR WETSUIT if you don't want to wear lifejacket in water

    This was an AMAZING excursion. The boat captain , and both of our guides, especially Lena, were exceptional! We saw so many whale sharks it made it hard to know where to look! These gently giants of the sea were so beautiful! We enjoyed seeing them both while snorkeling and on the boat.
