Whale sharks are resident in Utila all year round, but are most prevalent in March and April, when as many as 30 can be around in the area. WSORC works on conserving these creatures, plotting their migratory habits and tagging them, and they like to get people involved. They offer five-hour trips to spot and snorkel with the creatures and also provide theory courses and volunteer opportunities. You can go with other dive boats to see the whale sharks for a cheaper price, but with WSORC the money funds their research and they offer the best chance to find the animals as they go out there for research so spend the most time looking.
