    This was amazing! Our guide was Alexander with Sun Rider Tours and he was super knowledgeable about the sharks and extremely helpful and able to manage all the different experience and swimming ability levels. This is a must do and this is a great tour group to go with!

    Delise was a such a great guide! And our driver worked hard to get us to the whale sharks! The music snacks and beer on the ride home was a nice end to the tour! Loved it!

    Website says meeting point is between Burger King and a hotel which would be in the middle of a street. Better description of actual meeting point and nearby parking would be great.
