Whale Shark Tour FAQ

When is the best time to see Whale Sharks?

Whale sharks can be seen only around the “New Moon” dates. When the moon is bright, whale sharks are going all over the ocean to find breakfast. During the dark moon, they come to floating fishing platforms that have strong lights at night attracting plankton and fish that whale sharks love for breakfast. Please contact us to plan your trip at the right time

Can I touch the whale sharks?

No. Amongst other reasons, it is a protected marine species and its skin is covered in a sensitive mucus membrane and should not be touched (thank you!)

Can I snorkel?

Yes. This is the best way to interact with this amazing animal

What equipment do I need?

We provide all the equipment you need (snorkel, mask and fins), but feel free to bring your own

We also suggest bringing ear plugs because of the loud sound of the boat’s engine that will be used to go to the Whale Shark location (tourism is not yet developed so that the facilities and infrastructure are still quite minimal)

Is there an age limit?

This Excursion is for families and children over 6 years old. Children must be able to swim/ snorkel

  5. Hello The Langkah Travel. I want to ask for Sumbawa Whale Shark Tour:

    My husband and I are doing a tour from Lombok to Labuan Jambu that ends on the morning of the 27th October. Would it be possible to do a morning whale shark trip for the 2 of of us on the morning of the 27th, with pick up and return to Labuan Jambo (Sylvia resort), rather than sumbawa. If so what time would pick up / drop off be? And what would the price be?
