PLEASE NOTE: This trip itinerary varies depending on the trip date your choose. While all the activities, times and schedules remain the same the order of which camp you will attend first and second may vary. Some dates visit our ESI camp first and end with our whale camp while others start at our whale camp and end at our ESI camp. If you wish to know the order of which camp you’ll attend first and second contact our office.
Although we do our best to adhere to the above itinerary, it is subject to change for reasons beyond our control including wildlife unpredictability, weather and port closures. Upon the chance the port is closed and we can not get a group to the island on departure day we will provide a land based activity for this day. Snorkeling with whale sharks is completely weather dependent (calm seas are necessary) and wildlife predictability so this activity will depend on the weather and presence of sharks on the days and time we have scheduled to do this.
