Whale Shark Expedition and Picnic

Water Adventures and Excursions
This exciting trip begins with a speed boat ride across to the Ari Atoll, where our search for the largest shark in the ocean will begin. Once a whale shark has been spotted, guests are invited to snorkel alongside this gentle sea giant. At lunchtime we will stop on an uninhabited island to enjoy a picnic, before heading back out to continue the hunt.
