When to go?
The whalehark season in Djibouti is short, starting mid September until January. The water is warm and calm in the Bay at this time of year. After January, the main focus of the trip will be the reef diving. As most of the whaleshark encounters are made snorkeling, this is a great holiday for non divers too.
Djibouti has some classic Red Sea species as well as other fish from the Indian Ocean.
Top dive sites to visit: Ras Korali Ridge, Ghoubet el Karab, Ras Eiro, Escape Beach, Ghoubet Pass
