    Any good? It's the best in the world for my money! Granted I did it in October but I think conditions would be pretty much the same in September. The only rough part was the crossings to Darwin and Wolf but honestly they weren't that bad. Once we we were actually there we had calm seas.

    September is the heart of the whale shark season so best time to see big stuff, yes. For water temps I recommend checking the captains log on the aggressor website, you can see their records from previous years. Went I was there we had unusually warm waters but at that time of year it's meant to be ~24 in the north and can go as low as 16 in the west.

    This is my video from last year which shows most of what there is to see

    Got several spaces in September on top boats if you plan to go then. Some at $1000 off and others at $1760 off regular rates.
