When to see whale sharks

Hi I'm planning on making a trip to you guys but was wondering when the best time was to come to get a chance to swim or dive with whale sharks please it's been my dream for some time now. Any help would be fanstatic thank you.

Vilamendhoo Island

Since Vilamendhoo Island has been highly recommended for scuba diving, we booked online www.vilamendhoo.com. Yet, I am confused since there seems to be another identical website www.vilamendhooisland.com and two different email adresses reservatons@vilamendhoo.com and reservations@vilamendhooisland.com. In order to avoid any fraud,maybe someone could advise me on this matter. Both sites look absolutely identical.


Appropriate thickness (mm) wetsuit for Sardine Run

We are going to dive Aliwal and the Sardine Run around the end of June. I am somewhat warm natured but don't want to get chilled either. I am back and forth between using 5mm or 7mm protection.

Hi, Rod! I would suggest using 7 mm one. It is actually winter in SAR in June, so the water will be rather cold.

Wicked Diving at the Similan Islands and Khao Lak

Khao Lak8 Mar 2017 - 11 Mar 2017 with Wicked Diving

We booked our first livaboard and would recommend this option to anyone planning a visit. Never done one before and were sceptical. People and staff were great and you had the option to have 'me' time if desired.

We dived with Wicked, having been let down by Similan Divers -avoid.

Wicked are well run and safety conscious ensuring both you and they are free from risk.This made us completely at ease as in good hands.

Boat journey is about 5 hours. Our cabin was bunk bed and had aircon and a fan. This was perfectly comfortable for sleeping during our 4 day 3 night trip.The boats are simple and have all the necessary amenities.There are eco toilets and showers.Wicked provide reduced chemical shampoo and shower gel to limit the effect on the wildlife.The lower deck is where the tanks are held and filled; cabins and showers/ toilets are here too.

Next level up is the briefing area with tables and where meals are also had.

Food is excellent and varied. The fridge is stocked with beers and soft drinks; fruit, water and juice are FOC.You can bring your own drinks and food as required.The top deck is a sun and shade area with bean bags to lounge and chill on.Diving is great; visibility 30 metres and water 30 deg. Typically first dive about 7; night dive can be sunset or total darkness depending upon your comfort level.Off the boat, we did a local dive. Boonsung is a must! A wreck in 3 pieces; home to a whole host of nursery age fish in outrageously large volumes! Loved seeing the tiny barracuda in more numbers than I could count!! At one point I was in the middle of a ball of fish! You won't struggle to find lion fish and stone fish.Giant tame puffer fish glide alongside you. Great opportunities to see nudibranches that you might not ordinarily see - very flamboyant! Diving was great and Wicked as a company are excellent. It's not 5 star accommodation, so if that is what you need, search elsewhere, the service, safety, food, atmosphere and attention to detail are!
