WHALE SHARK EXCURSION
A once in a livetime experience twice a week with BlueTribe.
The whale shark excursion is run twice a week. Usually Tuesdays and Saturdays.
We meet at the Diving Center 10min before departure.
It is recommended to bring sunglasses, camera, snorkelling set, sun block, rash guard or t-shirt for snorkeling.
During the Northeast monsoon season, between January and May and other times of the year, we organize weekly trips to Maamigili Kandu channel, at the south of South Ari Atoll. It’s a fantastic adventure, an expedition itself, with the speedboat in search of the whale shark.
During the navigation you will be offered sandwiches, fruit, cold drinks, water, tea and coffee. The biggest fish in the world, its size varies from 5 meters of a puppy and can reach 12-15 meters in length in the adult.
It feeds on plankton, crustaceans and small fishes. It is harmless. You can take pictures and make videos or, your choice, swim next to him.
