When we were in Placencia last week, mention was made that there may be an early spawn this year (I don't know who makes the prediction
.) We've been there during the all the months whale sharks come through since there have been guided trips and it's all about luck and timing and full moons to see them. One man we know (age mid-70s
) comes in May for the whole month and he dives every day that it's possible to do so. Needless to say, he's one of the lucky ones who has had several encounters.
