Hello - I'll be in Belize late March through mid-April. I've been before and love it. I've done a lot of diving from Ambergris and day trips to Blue Hole and Turneffe. I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the opportunity to see a whale shark this time around . . and although no guarantee, I've heard April from Placencia is the best bet. And something about a full moon - during the full moon, after? Not sure. . .

I've stayed in Hopkins before and would prefer to stay there - just a good of a chance diving from there vs. Placencia?

Peak whale shark diving is during the period 4-5 days before and after the full moon the dates for April are
APRIL 7th - 19th

Spend a couple of days in Placencia and go with Brian Young at Seahorse Dive Shop. Make sure you book April trip get booked very early
Here is his website with all info about Whale Shark Diving. If the whale sharks are out thee they will find them
