KRABI — A whale shark was spotted swimming off a small island in the Andaman Sea off the shore of Krabi yesterday.


The whale shark, thought to be six meters long and weigh one ton, was spotted about five kilometers from Koh Hong from the longtail boat of national park officer Jampen Phompakdi, who said it swam alongside the boat for a few minutes before diving down into the sea.


Whale sharks were also reportedly seen Dec. 5 by local fishermen at Koh Hong and Tha Lane Bay. Koh Hong is part of the Than Bok Khorani National Park. The marine wildlife is usually found offshore in December, sometimes in groups, Jampen said.

Jet skis are forbidden in Krabi

If you want to see 9 meter whale sharks and be able to swim with them, you need to go to Ningaloo reef, its worth it.
