Discover Qatar launches new tour for seeing whale sharks

An awe-inspiring experience awaits Discover Qatar guests, who are being given the chance to see a true natural wonder — one of the largest aggregations of whale sharks. A new tour, ‘Discover the Whale Sharks of Qatar’, offers guests the option of sightings from a luxurious ‘Private Charter’ yacht or a ‘Daily Explorer’ tour on a high-speed catamaran. Whale sharks can live up to 100 years and grow up to 12 metres in length. Between the summer months of April and September, during their annual migration to the region, whale sharks are found feeding in spectacular groups of hundreds off the northern coast of Qatar.
