The southern tip of the South Ari atoll is known globally as a
hotspot for whale sharks and, in particular, their annual migration
to warmer waters. If you'd like to see the world's largest fish in
its natural habitat, we've got a real treat for you. Our whale
shark day trip begins with a presentation on this beguiling
species, followed by the main attraction: a snorkeling trip.
Stopping for lunch on a nearby island, the locals will reveal how
they used to hunt whale sharks… Ending a remarkable day, a photo ID
session will bring to life the stories of individual whale sharks.
