Belize Whale Shark Diving

Belize Whale Shark Diving Tours

Between the months of April and June, Belize diving gets even more exciting as Whale Sharks migrate into the Gladden area. Whale sharks are one of the biggest fish found in the Caribbean Sea. The largest measured whale shark was 40 feet long and 5 feet wide, that's bigger than a school bus! These creatures are known to swim right up to divers, but they are not aggressive only curious.

These giant, gentle creatures travel to the Gladden Spit Silk Cayes Marine Reserve to mate and feed on the spawn of Mutton and Cuberra snapper. The best time to see these creatures are 4-5 days after the full moon. Divers can get an up close look at these majestic sharks and also thousands of other reef fish and sea animals.
