There's a saying in the world of commercial shark diving "smaller is better". We're moving away for a moment from some of the larger operations out there to look at a local company that get's almost no press-Sea Horse Dive Shop Belize:
Join us in the months of March, April,May, and June when whale sharks are observed at the Gladden Split Area by divers and snorkellers.
This species, despite its enormous size, does not pose any significant danger to humans. It is a frequently cited example when educating the public about the popular misconceptions of all sharks as "man-eaters". They are actually quite gentle and can be playful with divers. Divers and snorkellers can swim with this giant fish without any risk apart from unintentionally being hit by the shark's large tail fin.
Editors Note: At $150 per diver per day - Whale shark encounters here are a "bargain".
