Anantara Launches Whale Shark Adventure

Banana Island Resort Doha by Anantara has partnered with Discover Qatar to provide once-in-a-lifetime excursions to view whale sharks – the gentle giants of the ocean.

The newly launched experience takes travellers in Qatar to view one of the largest congregations of whale sharks that can be found on the planet.

From April to September, the cooler waters off the country’s north-east coast provide the perfect location to see large numbers of whale sharks that gather to feed. The unique excursion takes guests on a high-speed catamaran to view these majestic creatures. A whale shark expert is on board to help educate guests, along with a professional photographer to capture guests’ experiences.

In addition, Banana Island will reopen its surf pool. After a full renovation, the surf pool once again adds to the wide selection of watersport activities available at the resort. Guests can now enjoy two wide surfing lanes simulating ocean waves, with private surfing lessons available and the lanes bookable exclusively for friends and family.

Located just off the coast of downtown Doha, Banana Island is the perfect luxurious escape from the city offering a wide range of accommodation options and vast facilities for guests to enjoy
