A Whale of an Adventure

Limited Spots Available Due to Limited Viewing Opportunities - Reserve your 2016 Whale Shark Dive - Contact Reservations at Chabil Mar

Whale Shark DivingWhale Sharks, the largest living fish, congregate near Gladden Spit off Placencia, Belize to feed on plankton and other spawning fish. Slow moving, filter-feeding sharks, these gentle giants typically gather only during the full moon of March - June.

Due to the Whale Sharks relatively brief stay and local protection/conservation efforts, Whale Shark diving is extremely limited, but this package offers a rare opportunity to swim with these amazing aquatic creatures.

Our unique Whale Shark Dive Package includes 3 Whale Shark dives, 2 world-class reef dives along the largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere, and 7 nights at the luxurious Chabil Mar Resort.

(This packaged Belize vacation includes both diving and an inland tour, but you can customize your whale shark dive vacation. Just contact our Reservations Manager to customize your Whale Shark Dive vacation

On non-dive days, you can explore Mayan ruins, hike the trails of the world's only jaguar preserve, or trek up the Monkey River where nature abounds. Or simply enjoy being pampered in your exquisitely appointed villas, relax on your private veranda, or lounge poolside or on the white sand beach at Chabil Mar.

Don't wait to book. Like the Whale Sharks, this package will soon be gone. Ideal dates for 2016 Whale Shark dives are two days after the full moon for a five day period:


    March 23rd – April 3rd (Date of the Full Moon: March 23)

    April 22rd – May 3rd (Date of the Full Moon: April 22)

    May 21st – June 1st (Date of the Full Moon: May 21)
