- Donsol, Philippines

- Ningaloo Reef, Australia

For diving with them, try Placencia, Belize

Actually, a closer and more accessible spot is La Paz just north of Cabo San Lucas. There appears to be a resident group there. Give Lars at Sunshine Divers in Cabo a call/e-mail. They run trips up to La Paz when the whale sharks are in. My understanding is that they are present year round.
