• Whale sharks at the Cenderawasih Bay is considered wild animal, which the presence are not under human control. In our experience, the best time to see whale sharks is when it is New Moon, should also inform you that on certain seasons or times we can't predict when the whale sharks will be there or not, it is not in our control. But when it is Full Moon it is to be sure that we can't guarantee you will see whale sharks.

Regarding that, how the situations is on the field would not change any price settled and or payment regulation from our resort.
