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....
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.
