there arent really any whale sharks in the waters up here, but after you have exhausted all the fun here in belize, you can head to honduras and check them out there (during season, although you can get lucky other times of the year from what i understand). I can refer you to some dive shops there if you are interested.

Someone else chime in here, but i do think that sometimes you can see them out of PG, but i'm not sure about that.

The biggest congregation is at Gladden Spit (Belize). Tour operators run out of Hopkins, Placencia and I believe South Water Caye.

Google "Whale Shark tours +belize" and you'll find plenty of tours.

Your best bet is to go to Placencia, contact Brain Young at Seshorse Divers. Best time is in March, April and May about 4/5 days before and after the full moon.
You can take Tropic Air from AC and spend a coupe of days in Placencia diving with the Whale Sharks.
Here is their web site

thank you

I sent him an email from his sight. For a once in a life time trip like that recommendations mean a lot. We just happen to be down at the perfect time in april and it would make my son's life..( he's 9). Would you recommend the dive or just snorkel and any recommendations for a place to stay?

Your son won't be able to do the dive but you can get just as close to them when snorkeling. They usually swim up right at the surface. It is a blue water dive and you're SUPPOSED to be an advanced diver to do it. Just be prepared for the long bumpy ride out to the site although it is well worth it if you get to see the giant beasts.
