Those in the know are heading to Djibouti for a scuba diving holiday that is quite unlike any other. Forget shore diving - Djibouti's gems can only be found from the comfort of a liveaboard. Step onto our Djibouti liveaboard and leave the everyday behind you on a holiday dedicated to finding whalesharks, as well as exploring the Red Sea's lesser known dive sites. The Gulf of Tadjourah is the place to be and where the best whaleshark encounters are had. From a generous back dive deck, giant stride into a magical mixture of Red Sea diving with some fishy faces that would be more at home in Indian ocean. After a heady day in the water you can relax back with a drink from the bar and enjoy a stunning sun setting behind the mountains or check out the day's photographs on the on board flat screen.
There is no doubt as to what the main attraction is here. Each and every year whale sharks cruise into Djibouti's waters, stopping off on their annual migrations. If you have not yet managed to see these formidable beauties - or just want to see them again - then Djibouti is the place to head for. From juvenile whale sharks on their first migration route to fully sized adults, these peaceful plankton eaters congregate in and around the Bay of Tadjourah. The whale sharks busy themselves ram feeding - a behaviour that is rarely seen elsewhere. Most encounters are snorkeling but a lucky few are spotted on scuba as well, swishing past in the shallows. Diver, non diver, photographer or video buff, a trip to Djibouti will stick in your memory forever.
