Whale shark tours - snorkel

We'll be in Placencia near the end of March. Any recommendations for a whale shark excursion - for snorkelers?

Also, since the "season" begins when we get there, it is a good idea to book in advance, or would a day in advance be OK? Thanx.

Book in advance, as there are passenger limits for whale shark dives/snorkel trips. Full moon is March 27 and most productive time to see them is in t he 10 days after the full moon

I highly recommend Avadon Divers. They offer a professional service on a very comfortable, safe and reliable boat. Snorkelers are welcomed.

Avadon and Splash take snorkelers on the Whale Shark dives. I would book in advance since there are limited number of spaces available on those tours.
