Not many people in the world get to experience such an amazing event but here in Koh Tao its actually a fairly regular experience. It is beleived the Whalesharks we get that visit us in Koh Tao are on a migratory route which involves setting off from the Phillipines, then up to Thailand over to the Indian ocean for a visit to the Seychelles and Maldives then down the coast of Africa where when it reaches South Africa then is beleived to head back along the coast the way it came & back to Thailand. SOme Whalesharks have been tracked all the way over to Western Australia aswell but most of the ones we get do the Asian/ African route. Whalesharks are they the backpackers of the ocean. Typically here in Koh Tao if we see Whalesharks at Chumphon Pnnacle where this Whaleshark was seen then we can pretty much expect to see them at some point in the coming days or weeks at Shark Island, Southwest Pinnacle & Sail Rock too. So request your divesites with us & we'll take you there. Big Blue Diving, backpacking with Whalesharks since 1991!
