where can I dive with whale sharks in Thailand? And is there any good diving sites that can be reached without a boat (close to the shore)?

Obviously there's no guarantee, but Phuket/Phi Phi/Similians and Koh Tao have regular whale shark sightings.
Shore diving is popular in Thailand -- the good sites are only accessible by boat.

Koh Tao is has a few sites where they are seen - but you do have to go by boat .....March, April , May and Sept and October are good times to come but they do pop up randomly during the year too....

oops, my previous comment should say:
Shore diving is NOT popular in Thailand.

I did 7 dives in Koh Tao and didn't see 1 shark.. Some some Rays, cool fish, crabs etc. The morning before I go there they spoted a whale shark.

Whalesharks have been quite regularly spotted over the last few weeks - with intermittent sightings since March... Sept and Oct is also a another good time to see them.

i did 350 dives round phuket/similans over 2 years, and never saw no whale sharks
although we always used to tell the punters that there was a chance!

As far as I know, there are obviously whales and sharks. But everybody should believe in fat! If luck favors, you may face them.
