    Our guide and captain were great. Also, the boat was nicer than a lot of the other ones we saw out on the water (onboard bathroom) and drinks and snacks were provided after swimming. They explained the rules about going into the whale shark zone and taught us about the sharks. There a lot of rules governing this industry (the whale sharks are endangered), so be prepared to wait a little bit. We were able to swim with two different whale sharks on our tour.

    If you don’t already know how to use a snorkel and swim with flippers, I recommend watching a YouTube video about that ahead of time. If you struggle with the technique of that it can be hard to spend a lot of time in the water with the sharks.

    This adventure was absolutely incredible. The crew of the Sunrider knew exactly where to go to swim with these amazing creatures. I would definitely recommend it to all who enjoy to be awed by nature.

    We were asked to come 2 hours earlier 2 days before the tour to get a better spot on the waiting list of boats going to the whale shark territory. We were put on a boat where we sat for 2 hours waiting. We did eventually go and did see the sharks and everyone was able to swim with them. Amazing

    Great captain and crew. Whale sharks are amazing, but you have to swim fast o catch up with them.
