After the talk you have to pay, for more details on the amounts see below.
Then you must make sure you collect your life vest, snorkel and mask, even if you have opted to stay in the boat, take the mask, this enables you to look into the water and see clearly.
Then you will be guided into a boat NOTE do not take anything you dont want to get wet ... everything you take into the boat will get wet!
The boat ride is a mere 100 metres from the beach and youre boat will join the row of boats out there, while a local fisherman leads the whalesharks passed you as he feeds them.
So now you grab the mask and slip (not jump) into the water and peer down as the whalesharks swim by following the boat that is feeding them.
The whalesharks will be busy following the food and will not be bothered by you at all so relax and enjoy the view.
The 30 minutes will go by very quickly and you will get upclose to these
gentle giants, so make the most of it, please respect them by not touching
the whalesharks - even when they swim straight at you they will not crash
into you, despite their size (4 to 12 metres) they glide by effortlessly.
At the end the fishermen will help you back into the boat with a big grin on your face then its back to shore, leave the life Jacket and mask in the boat but remember to take all your belongings
