Whale Shark Diving in Placencia

Swim with a gentle giant—the 18-meter-long whale shark!

These massive, slow-moving sharks feed on tiny plankton and are often elusive, only appearing from the depths suddenly and unexpectedly. 

Gladden Spit, east of Placencia, is one of the very few places on earth where ecological whale shark visits can be predicted with relative accuracy.

Take this opportunity to snorkel alongside a truly iconic species.
