Whale sharks, despite its enormous size, does not pose any significant danger to humans. In Belize, during the months of March to June, whale sharks frequently visit a reef named Gladden Spit, about 30 miles east of Placencia. This reef is used by over 20 species of Caribbean fish to release their eggs – however, it is the eggs of the Black or Cubera snappers that the whale sharks show up on cue to feed on.
Sure, you can find whale sharks all over the world, but Gladden Spit is the only place in the world where you can dive with whale sharks and encounter a huge school of spawning fish at the same time. So don’t miss out this great opportunity to do so!
