Discover Qatar Offers Exclusive Whale Sharks Watching Experience
Discover Qatar, the destination management company of Qatar Airways, has announced that the second edition of its ‘Whale Sharks in Qatar’ tours will begin from 18 May, 2023 and run till the end of August.
Daily tours and private charters can be booked exclusively through the Discover Qatar and Qatar Airways Holidays online platforms.
The once-in-a-lifetime experience departs every Thursday to Sunday for 8 hours on a 40-seater catamaran, and starts from USD 249 per person.
Nature enthusiasts can also avail private charters on a luxury yacht with a capacity up to 16 guests. Both tours include an expert guide, with Wi-Fi, refreshments, and breakfast and lunch provided.
Qatar has the largest concentration of Whale Sharks in the world, making it the only place visitors can see so many in a single sighting.
Often referred to as ‘gentle giants’, they are estimated to have existed for 60 million years, can live up to 100 years, and grow up to 12 metres in length.
Launched in 2022, the ‘Whale Sharks of Qatar’ tour has been a resounding success, with nearly 500 explorers becoming the first to observe up to 300 Whale Sharks congregating off the north-eastern coast of Qatar.
Discover Qatar has also produced a detailed e-brochure which provides information about the tours. For more information and to book, please click here.
