Dear B B, we are happy to hear that you have enjoyed the trip with us. The season for spotting whaleshark is starting from November until January when are the chances really high due to the plankton. Later on especially during low season is rare to see them. But there is always a chance. Hope to see you again Best regards Dolphin Excursions Team

Dear Traveler, Thank you for your review. We are happy you enjoyed your day out with us. Compared to previous years this year has been especially challenging to find the whalesharks.

With kind regards, The Dolphin team

We went with them to see the whale sharks but we were not lucky. We were the first group to go, we turned around but we couldn't see them, and then the second group went there and saw them. It was a question of luck but not the agency's fault. However, they should have done some
