Swimming With a Whale Shark
There has been a surge in the tourist attraction due to the whale shark. It is usually a calm animal unless instigated. As the whale shark is on the verge of extinction the government has to ensure they are protected. Guidelines have been issued to make sure that they are not harassed by tourists and visitors. Senior citizens who are on a holiday vacation found this activity exciting.
Being hit by the whale shark’s body, fins or tail can prove fatal for you so you must exercise caution while going near them and strictly follow the guidelines in order to be safe.
Code of conduct
There are certain necessary guidelines to be followed in the water, around the sharks for self protection as well as welfare of the animals.
Licensed operators make sure that in case of any accidents, you will not be liable to pay for the losses. Their whale shark tour guides are trained for assisting you through the tour as well as handling any medical accidents or situations.
