- Frequently Asked Questions -
Q. Do We Always See Whale Sharks?
A. Whale Sharks are living at the open sea, so sometimes it is a bit of a search but that is all in the fun! We can not guarantee you will see them but in more than 90% of the tours we take out, you will see them and swim with them.
Q. Do You Feed The Whalesharks?
A. No in comparison with other Whale Shark encounters in the world, we do not feed them. They feed themselves with plankton and fish eggs, they float on the surface and that is why the whale sharks are at the surface as well, scooping up the foot and filtering it in their wide mouth.
Q. How Big Are The Whale Sharks?
A. A small Whale Shark is 18 feet a big one is 40 feet and then all the sizes in between.
Q. Can The Whale Sharks Hurt Me?
A. Nobody gets hurt by the whale shark but we can hurt the whale shark that is why there are rules of no touching the Whale Shark and keep a bit distance so we can enjoy the Whale Shark and the Whale Shark can enjoy his natural space.
Q. Why Is There No Afternoon Trip Possible?
A. Whale Sharks feed themselves in the morning, in the afternoon they go down deep so there will be a low chance of seeing them in the afternoon.
