How to explore the whales ..
Boat trips are arranged starting from the harbor at Ban Laem town which is approx. 80 km/1.5 hours drive north of Hua Hin. From here you can reach places in the Thai Bay, where there are currently more than 50 Brydes whales to be found.
There are many different tour operators on the streets of Hua Hin who, as a guarantee, would like to help you with transportation on both land and water, another option may be to book the tour through the Wild Encounter Thailand company, which is based in Bangkok. Costs around 2000-2500 THB per adult.
When is the best time?
As a rule, the Brydes whales can be experienced throughout the year in the Gulf of Thailand. But it's normaly in the months just at the end or after the rainy monsoon that it's easiest to spot them, from September to December.
Bonus info! If you and your family, instead of experiencing live whales, is ok with just seeing a real whale skeleton, then you can see such one at a small mini museum that is right next to the beach at Suan Son Beach..and it's for free !
