I think for seeing whalesharks you should go to south ari atoll. We saw a lot of Whalesharks at Dhigurah. It's a perfect spot for diving. We were there last July and stayed at TME Dhigurah.

Hello Pamela, You can expect to see whalesharks , throughout the year. And from Nov-Jan should be good, but Fab -April could be better in terms of weather! Thank you
