About the Whale Sharks in Qatar Tour
The once-in-a-lifetime adventure, which takes place on a 40-seat catamaran and departs every Thursday through Sunday for eight hours, has a starting price of USD 249 per person. Private charters aboard a luxury yacht that can accommodate up to 16 passengers are also available for nature lovers who want to get away from it all. Each tour comes with a knowledgeable guide, as well as complimentary breakfast and lunch, as well as Wi-Fi and other refreshments.
“Our second edition of the exclusive ‘Whale Sharks in Qatar’ tours, offered through Discover Qatar, presents an unmissable opportunity for nature lovers to witness and interact with the grand and gentle creatures of the sea,” said His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, Chief Executive Officer of Qatar Airways Group. These tours are offered through Discover Qatar. We are delighted to say that Qatar is home to one of the largest concentrations of Whale Sharks in the world, and we remain committed to being the premier destination that connects people from all over the world with marine species that is as intriguing as this.”
Due to the fact that Qatar is home to the world’s greatest concentration of Whale Sharks, it is the only location in which tourists have the opportunity to observe so many of these creatures in a single outing. It is thought that they have been around for 60 million years, that they can live up to 100 years, and that they can grow up to 12 meters in length. They are frequently described to as “gentle giants.”
Over 500 explorers were the first people to witness up to 300 Whale Sharks congregating off the north-eastern coast of Qatar in 2022, when the “Whale Sharks of Qatar” tour was first introduced. The tour was a tremendous success and was launched in 2022. Explore Qatar has also developed a comprehensive electronic booklet that can be downloaded for additional information regarding the tours.
