HOPKINS, Belize- Hamanasi Adventure and Dive Resort invites guests to the underwater adventure of a lifetime: diving with the biggest fish in the sea.
Whale shark diving season on Belize’s Southern Barrier Reef is April, May, and June.
During the full moon phases of these months, guests at Hamanasi have the opportunity to swim, snorkel, and scuba dive with these gentle giants. Just an hour boat ride from Hamanasi, Gladden Spit is the spawning ground for Mutton and Caberra snapper; the spawn are a favorite whale shark snack.
Visibility is often well over 100 feet, allowing small groups of 8-12, to share this unique experience.
Hamanasi is a PADI 5 Star Gold Palm Resort and can offer guests beginner, refresher, and advanced scuba diving courses.
In addition to whale shark trips, Hamanasi diving and snorkeling guests can explore parts of the Belize Barrier reef system and three Belizean atolls.
After an incredible day at sea, guests can easily return to a freshly prepared dinner and the comforts of a Hamanasi treehouse, honeymoon suite, or beachfront room.
Starting Winter 2012 guests can enjoy new deluxe tree houses as well.
