Whale Shark Sighting in Koh Tao ThailandWhale Shark Season Hits Koh Tao.

Over the last six weeks we`ve enjoyed great diving conditions on the islands, pinnacles and wrecks around Koh Tao. Visibility has been in the 20 - 30 metres range, plus seas have been mostly flat. But even better - we`ve had an enormous number of whale shark sightings throughout this period!

Most of the sightings have been of whale sharks up to 5 - 6 metres in length, i.e. juvenile specimins, frequently seen around the more isolated sites such as the Chumphon Pinnacles, Southwest Pinnacles and Sail Rock.

Two days ago DJL Instructor Matt Notte was completing dives three & four of an Open Water Course an got to enjoy a whale shark at the Chumphon Pinnacles. This one was approximatly 4 metres long and stuck around our divers for a long time! Imagine if we could promise a whale shark sighting with every course!
