Belize Whale Shark Diving
Why People Love It
One of the few places in the world where it’s possible to see Whale Shark
Dive with Whale Sharks!
In the months of March, April ,May, and June, around the full moon, whale sharks are observed at the Gladden Split Area by divers and snorkelers.
This species, despite its enormous size, does not pose any significant danger to humans. It is a frequently cited example when educating the public about the popular misconceptions of all sharks as “man-eaters”.
They are actually quite gentle and can be playful with divers. Divers and snorkellers can swim with this giant fish without any risk apart from unintentionally being hit by the shark’s large tail fin.
In Belize, during the spring time, Whale shark frequently visit a unique area on the reef called gladden Gladden Split. This Area, about 30 miles east of Placencia, is used by over 20 species of Caribbean fish to release their eggs. However, it is the eggs of the Black or Cubera snappers that the whale sharks show up on cue to feed on.
And, although you can find whale sharks all over the world, what makes Gladden Split so unique is that, this is the only place where you can dive with whale shark and encounter huge school of spawning fish at same time.
