Whale Sharks are spotted near the coast of Diani during the months of February – March and then from November – December. A spotter plane is used to locate them from the air then they send a report to update the speed boat about the location of the whale sharks.

The departures are based on minimum numbers in the boat, a private boat hire is also possible.
