Whale Shark Diving

Gladden Spit


Gladden Spit is located near Placencia in Southern Belize is an one hour and thirty minute boat ride away. You will dive at a depth no deeper than 60 feet. This dive is conducted in the open ocean with no visible bottom. Divers get the chance to swim along the largest fish in the ocean, the whale shark. There's no guarantee that you will see a whale shark, but this offers the best opportunity to do so. For the second dive, we will also dive inside the Gladden Spit Marine Park for a chance at another whale shark sighting.

The whale shark tours typically last six hours and are offered seasonally based on the whale shark migration. The whale shark season in Belize normally begins two days before the full moon and lasts until 10 days after in March, April, May and June. Whale shark tours are only offered out of Placencia, but please contact us for assistance booking travel arrangements from other locations. 

This is an advanced dive/ snorkel and is only for experienced divers and snorkelers. Whale Shark tours are available only from Placencia, Belize.
