I'm planning a visit in the third week of June. What're the chances for a successful whale shark drive during that time frame? How would I go about finding out and getting on a boat if there is a citing?


P.S. Here's hoping the $^#*@*! oil spill doesn't affect them

Whale Sharks are found in the Southern parts of Belize.
You will need to stay in Placencia or Hopkins for those trips.

Sorry for the newbie nature of the question ;-) I was hoping I can hang out in AC and still be able to do an overnight or 2 day trip if / when there has been sightings? I'll read the page. Thanks elbert :-)

You can stay in AC and then do 2 nights in Placencia. Its difficult (more or less impossible) to just do an overnight due to the Tropic air plane schedules. The 4/5 days around the full moon (JUNE 24th - JULY 6th) are the best times for sighting
Here is a link to Seahorse Dive Shop website which will give you more info on whale shark diving. I thoroughly recommend them
