3 Island Whale Shark Dive are not only one of the cheapest options on the reef but they are also one of (if not the) best! From the beginning of the booking stage to the end of the dive itself, you talk to real people and are made to feel like a member of this Family run business.
I chose to use 3 Island because of their Trip Advisor reviews and boy was I blown out of the water, they exceeded my very high expectations! I am Vegan and because we booked this holiday in a group this fact was not passed onto the company during our booking, despite this fact I was well fed – and boy do they ensure you have plenty of food to keep up your energy for the Sharks! However, if you do tell them dietary requirements on booking they will cater for you further.
But let’s face it this is all about the Whale Sharks and they deliver – as they have their own spotter plane, we were lucky enough to meet a 9 metre long male. Due to his size we were not able to keep up with him for very long, but 3 Islands just gave us more drops into the water than usual to make sure that we had the same amount of water time as a tour would with a smaller and slower moving shark. In addition you will get a Snorkel prior to meeting the Whale Sharks, whilst the spotter plane is trying to find one for you. As the plane found a shark for us quite quickly we had time for a second snorkel in the afternoon. To top off your day you will also get a complementary CD with all of the photos of the day and some best of shots too. Meg was out photographer and unlike other tours we did, she knows how to use her camera and our shots were all stunning (from the snorkels and the shark swim). Other companies will charge you extra for this CD or for the added snorkels.
3 Islands not only makes you feel safe and in professional hands (as each staff member has been there for at least 5 years) but they also make sure that you have an amazing and above all fun day. Our Team was Elise, Rob, Meg, Tara and Noss – They each had a role to play in a day that will be talked about for years to come. Thank you to you each I can’t tell you how much fun my friends and I had and how amazing you each made it, your energy, passion and humour was infections.
