Most of our whale swim guests prefer to stay at 1 of our serviced beach houses. They are the ideal location for seeing the whales with easy access to the main whale watching areas as well as spotting them from your decks or even while taking a shower!

Our guests also receive a discounted rate of 750TOP per person on our whale swimming tours.
