explore the best
of Djibouti

Whale Shark Mania is the first thing that springs to mind when thinking of Djibouti!

Just 2 hours away from port is the famous “Ghoubet Al Kharab” inland sea which is a very important Whale Shark Nursery. The Whale Sharks live there during their younger years because it is an excellent enclosure from the dangers of the open sea while at the same time the water is very rich in nutrients. Djibouti is described as the safest place on Earth by all who live there. Djibouti has a near zero crime rate and if you decide to visit the shore, you will be greeted by smiles everywhere you go.
When: When:M.V Liberty will be in Djibouti from December until February

Other itineraries



On the WHALE SHARKS ONLY trip we spend the whole week in Ghoubet Al Kharab cruising the Whale Sharks. They appear at night attracted to our lights and they are around during the day time cruising the bay just like us.

For a change of scenery, we may also spend an evening on a beach with a nice BBQ.

the dive sites

This uniquie site is where the Whale sharks wait to astound you!

Goubet Al Kharab is an important nursing ground for Whale Sharks because of it's closed bay and rich water which provides both saftey and excellent feeding opportunity for these gentle giants.

Ghoubet Al Kharab also is spotted with un inhabited islands which are great for enclosure from winds.

This is a great desolate and uninhabited beach where we will stop for a BBQ (weather permitting). We can build a small camp, cook some good food and tell stories around the camp fire. If you are lucky, Ahmed will be there to tell you a few tall tales of his adventures at sea.
