We can't get there until 14th July. Can anyone advise how likely it is that they will still be there?
Beautiful diving there either way :D
It will probably depend on the season and the weather.. and a bit of luck! How long will you be spending there (the number of days you get out will probably make the difference).
It is 'in' season.. but as Desmond says usually they are brought in by increases in plankton and how long this lasts for depends on the weather and currents. Maybe ask dive operators in April when the whale sharks season has been so far you may be able to see if it is later this year or earlier.
Thanks very much everyone - happy diving!
We were there on 22 July 2014 - and saw one. But there were others on the boat who were making their 2nd trip - having failed to see one a couple of days earlier. So Exmouth Dive's offer to take you out again if unsuccessful is worthwhile. Probably a matter of luck.
