Swimming with whale sharks
Swimming with the largest fish in the ocean, the gentle filter-feeding whale sharks, has to be high on any nature-lover’s list. They are usually 5–12 metres long, but grow up to 18 metres. They congregate near Coral Bay from late March to June, and several operators will get you out there swimming and snorkelling beside them. There are lots of good operators but, unfortunately, the best way for them to work out where the whale sharks are is by spotter plane, which adds to the carbon cost of the trip. Recommended eco-accredited tours include those listed below.
