Best Time of Year for Whale Sharks?

Hi -- we're in the introductory stages of planning a trip to Roatan and Utila in '09. Obviously nothing is certain, but what time of year would give us the best shot at diving w/ whale sharks?

The best time is April and May. I check the UDC website they post any sightings, you will have to look at the bottom.

You can mail the dive shop and they will tell you the best time they see them every year and bet they can give you the best stats.

We where there in June and saw a pod of Pilot Whales and the boat jumped ahead and we were all in to swim and snorkel with them.

You will never know what ya will see, but if you don't go you will never know.
