Definately should not get in the water if you dont swim, having said that, many people do snorkel with a life vest on, though I really dont see the point myself

Yeah your right, but because of their B.I.O (Butanding Interaction Officer) they can help you to swim with the whale shark with a life vest.. and you can also ask a personal guide so that he will be the one who guided you personally if your willing to swim with the gentle giants..:)
