Whale sharks are the world’s largest fish and grow up to 20m in length. During the summer season (November to March), whale sharks can be spotted swimming slowly and close to the surface. Once spotted, you can calmly enter the water to snorkel alongside them. They can be shy so guests are not permited to touch them. Mafia Island follows the “Code of Conduct” which is a set of guidelines used all over the World. Your guide will make you aware of these guidelines for safely interacting with these amazing creatures.
