Whale Shark Diving
Placencia, Belize

Whale Sharks, the largest living fish, congregate near Gladden Spit off Placencia, Belize to feed on plankton and other spawning fish. Slow moving, filter-feeding sharks, these gentle giants typically gather only during the full moon of March – June. Due to the Whale Sharks relatively brief stay and local protection/conservation efforts, Whale Shark diving is extremely limited, but this package offers a rare opportunity to swim with these amazing aquatic creatures.

NOTE: There is no guarantee that you will see whale sharks on any given dive.
