Belize whale shark packages are scheduled every year during the full moon period in the months of April, May and June when the whale sharks migrate to an area known as the Gladden Spit off the coast of Placencia in Southern Belize.
Some thirty years ago a local fisherman living on one of the Sapodilla Cayes off the cost of southern Belize was the first person to report sightings of these magnificent creatures. Local fishermen from Placencia out on their annual snapper spawning fishing trips also had sightings, but thought it was only one shark, they named it Sapodilla Tom in honor of the first person that reported sightings.
After the introduction of scuba diving to the area in the early 90’s, it has been discovered that the migration is indeed dozens of sharks. Today this migration is the most popular diving attraction in Placencia with divers visiting from all over the world.
