The whale shark season for 2013 has started with a bang! 3 Islands tours commenced on Monday the 18th of March and we have had some magical days since. The first coral spawn happened on Sunday the 31st of March and what a delight greeted us the next day... up to 30 different whale sharks were feeding in a concentrated area, crew and passengers alike didn't know which way to look!
Tours will run through 7 days a week until the end of July - any time during the season is a great time to visit!
