Belize Whale Shark Diving Package

Join us in the months of March, April, May, and June around the full moon as we go in search of these majestic creatures.

During these months whale shark visit a unique area on the barrier reef, called Gladden Split, to feed on the eggs of thousands of reef fish that come here to spawn.

Divers will likely see these majestic creatures very close, but they are not allowed to chase, ride, touch, or otherwise disturb the Whale Sharks.
