The Kenyan coast has in the recent past seen an increase in whale shark population and in the months of February-March each year, there is almost guaranteed sightings of these elusive giants.

Visitors staying at the beach resorts along the south coast can join in on daily whale shark safari’s lasting 4 hours. This one of a kind expedition is simply one you can’t afford to miss. Whale sharks are mostly seen on the surface hence divers and snorkelers can swim with this gentle, curious creature while watching the research teams go through the delicate tagging process.

Daily trips are scheduled to depart by boat from Pinewood Village in Diani every morning. A spotter plane will be available to assist in locating the whale sharks which can be difficult to spot at times.

This is truly a memorable experience and helps to support research and conservation.
