A French team of young guides, highly professional. We spotted several whale sharks - the boat keeping a safe distance from the friendly giants to avoid upsetting them too much. Unlike some other operators we observed ... Highly recommended.

This is exactly the way I wanted to meet the whale sharks, highly recommended! Staff is eager to bring you marine life closer and helps to understand, what still exists under water, but is unfortunately endangered.
