We recently had the Whale Shark migration adventure of a lifetime.
Highly Recommend - SeaHorse Dive Shop, Placencia.

I second that. We dove with Brian at SeaHorse several years ago and thought they were amazing. They truly care about the whalesharks and make their wellbeing a priority.

Were you able to take pictures of those magnificent creatures? If so, would you consider sharing them on the message board? There was a picture of a Whale Shark taken by Cullen Walker in the "picture of the day" a while back. It was amazing! I would imagine it is a life changing experience to swim in the same waters as the elusive Whale Shark.

We dived with Brian at the full moon in April. Incredible experience saw 5 whale sharks on 2 dives. Pictures just do not do justification to these magnificent creatures, having a 35 feet creature cruising 10 feet above you in clear blue water is something really special
I have some photos anyone know how to add them to the board?

WOW - Amazing - That must have been incredible watching that wide-open HUGE mouth coming towards you! What an adventure. Another one of nature's many miracles.

I missed one shot of my wife positioned in front of the shark with the open mouth, the mouth must have been 5 feet across I thought she was going to be swallowed up.
The pictures just do not do justice to these creatures, having done some 500 odd dives all over the world I have never had such a memorable dive.
If you get a chance to go to Placencia during the 4 or 5 days around the full moon don't hesitate just book a trip with Brian at Seahorse. If there are whale sharks out there Brian will find them!!
