Best time to dive Alona

The good news is we dive all year round and the weather is generally always good.

Jan to May is typically the best time to see whalesharks here although increasingly we are seeing them all year round.

The busiest times here are around Chinese holidays and December through January.

In the peak seasons it is best if you can book in advance to ensure the trips you want, but walk in anytime and we will always look to accommodate you.
