Djibouti

Djibouti is far from the beaten track for most scuba divers but if it is whalesharks you want to see, there is no place better. Whilst most whaleshark encounters are close to shore, we stingily recommend a liveaboard here so you can escape the crowds of day boat snorkelers and focus on these stunning plankton eating sharks.
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 our Djibouti Liveaboard is the trip for you.

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.

  • Whalesharks

  • Batfish
  • Turtles
  • Dolphins

Top dive sites to visit: Ras Korali Ridge, Ghoubet el Karab, Ras Eiro, Escape Beach, Ghoubet Pass
