Girl trip to swim with whale sharks
fesairpro
, Aug 2018
Not gonna lie. Swimming with whale sharks was on my bucket list and this tour company made that happen. I'm older and they took great pains to find stationary whale sharks so I didn't have to swim like crazy. The tour company was impeccable about staying in communication with us. The guide was just ok. I am more grateful to the assistants who helped us in the water. This excursion was very pricey and the lunch included in that price was ridiculously lacking - embarrassingly so. Though I feel like my trip was a success and I like this tour company maybe look elsewhere for a more reasonable price.
