Amazing

It is a once in a lifetime tour to take. The whale sharks are incredible. Pros: Our tour guide was great, even when I got a little scared in the water, not of the whale shark, just the water in general. Lunch was nice at the Island. Cons: It does feel a little rushed and breakfast was a little small. Overall the whole experience was amazing.
