Hello, my wife & 12 year old son are looking for a camping trip for 4 nights from Tecolote to Espiritu Santo in November. Does Marlin do camping excursions?

We will be in the area Nov 15-22. Is this too late to see the whale sharks? I know it is particularly warm this year so maybe they are still around?
