The whale shark, the world’s largest fish, is an elusive, highly migratory oceanic fish that occasionally ventures to a handful of coastlines, swimming with one is truly a memorable experience.
Whale shark satellite tagging expeditions take place on Kenya’s beautiful south coast in the months of February to April each year.
The Kenyan coast has in the recent past seen an increase in whale shark population and there is almost guaranteed sightings of these elusive giants.
Whale sharks are mostly seen on the surface hence divers and snorkelers can swim with this gentle, curious creature while watching the research teams go through the delicate tagging process.
This is truly a memorable experience and helps to support research and conservation.
