Qatar and Ponant join forces for whale shark watching

December 12, 2020 Cruise News, Headline News No Comments

Qatar Airways subsidiary Discover Qatar has announced that it and Ponant have joined forces to provide an expedition cruise series travelling around the Qatar’s coastline, designed for seasoned travellers, with the fabulous bonus of the opportunity to observe the largest gathering of the world’s largest living fish, the whale shark  in the Al Shaheen marine zone.

The Whale Sharks of Qatar itinerary will see guests snorkel in coral reefs, explore mangroves, and sail through the turquoise waters of Khawr al Udayd, with a team of expert guides, marine biologists, naturalists and ornithologists also leading guests to identify local wildlife and offer a cultural perspective on the sites explored.

The eight-night expedition package starting cruising in April, on board Ponant’s Le Champlain can also be extended to a ten-night package, including a three-night stay in Doha.

On board Le Champlain, guests will also enjoy a 24-hour butler service, two restaurants, a luxury spa, an infinity pool and a multi- sensory futuristic underwater lounge with large observation windows below the waterline, with Le Champlain also featuring a hydraulic platform to ease disembarking and embarking to participate in expeditions.
