An experience not to miss

We had a great day swimming with 2,5 whale sharks (one of them left so fast that it couldn't count as 1, lol). The team is fantastic and they worked really hard to make sure we... read more

We had a great day swimming with 2,5 whale sharks (one of them left so fast that it couldn't count as 1, lol). The team is fantastic and they worked really hard to make sure we enjoyed our time with the whale sharks as much as possible. We had cameras but getting their magnificent pictures was great. And we also... More

They were so wonderful and professional about the whole experience. They made sure we were following all laws that are in place to protect the sharks but also had an amazing time and got to swim very close (as close as is safely and legally possible!) to these massive creatures. They made sure we felt safe and comfortable and got... More

Spectacular day. Fun, professional, attentive, and informative crew. Boat is not over crowded. This company has its own spotter plane (vs sharing with other companies) so we spent most of the day in the water with the whale sharks all to ourselves. The photographer does a great job capturing everyone with the whale sharks so you can really enjoy the... More

A very professional but friendly whale shark experience from start to finish. What was so great was that the guides clearly were genuinely enthusiastic about the whale sharks and the local area, which showed from the fact that they gave us some background on the drive to the harbour, gave us time to snorkel before seeing a whale shark so...

I was nervous - for NO REASON! I was nervous about not fitting into the wetsuits you had to wear - I did. They had wetsuits of ALL sizes! I was nervous about getting back on the boat (Im not the fittest!) but there's a simple ladder that you can use to get back on the boat if you cant... More

This was one of the most amazing experiences ever! All the staff were super-friendly and professional, providing the best teamwork we have ever seen. They were all wonderful, but I have to give particular thanks to Liv and Ari, who were marvellous and spent some time reassuring me (I was a bit scared of snorkelling in the ocean!). They got...

I was SO impressed!! Not just by the enormous, graceful, gentle whale sharks and the beautiful reef but the professionalism and care of the 3 Islands crew. The girls really knew their stuff, and made sure we knew what to do, and kept us safe but they had a lot of fun with us too. Right from the start when... More

The staff are fun, friendly, outgoing, experienced and helpful. The boat is clean and comfortable. We felt very safe with the boat captain and the excellent crew. The gear is just right for snorkeling and swimming with the whale shark. The snorkeling was awesome the day we went out, so many colorful tropical fish. We saw whales, dolphins and turtles.... More

My friend and I had an exceptional time. I'm an outdoorsy nature/animal lover, she isn't so much and we both were completely blown away by the day. We got picked up early from our hotel. The young women that picked us up were so nice, fun and informative, we got to swim 5 times with the whale shark, saw orcas,... More
