The whale shark season in Belize normally begins 2 days before the Full Moon up until 10 days after in the months of March, April, May, and June.
However, the best sightings normally occurs a few days after the full moon.
Traditionally April and May have been the better months for Whale Shark shark sightings. Although your chances of seeing a whale shark are very good then, we do sometimes miss and recommend booking multiple days to ensure that you get the best encounter.
If you have any questions about the best time to come or would like to make a reservation please feel free to contact us.
