Very important information: starting on March 25th, the whale shark season is open but limited since the number of whale sharks on the bay has reduced considerably. Thus, only 24 boats per day can acces this area.
Nonetheless, more than 50 boats request access to this area, so we can not guarantee 100% that the tour will happen. Day to day, every boat requests access and we can know if we get the access one day before or latest, the same day in the morning, since the turns are given randomly.
This regulations are enforced by the Environmental Secretary and are in favor of the whale shark conservation, and they apply the same for all the tour operators in the city.
