This is an awesome way to travel around the various sites of the Gulf of Aden / Tadjourah (Ghoubet bay,Sable Blanc,Ras Korali) and see its beauty. Those trips are great for divers and snorkelers too.

Whale Shark Season
November - January)

Whaleshark Day Trip by Skiff.jpg

Full Day trips - each Friday (0730-1715)

One of the highlights and the reason why a lots of people are visiting Djibouti!

Each Friday we are going to Arta beach area to search for Whale Sharks to swim & snorkel with them. Divers can do 1 dive on a reef close by where Whale Sharks are passing by, so if you are lucky, you can spot them underwater.

After a lunch, cooked onboard, you can relax or explore the reef close to the boat.

The Whale Shark trip could be also done during a week as a half day trip (0800-1300), with a small skiff. M
