SHARK WEEKS

What an exciting adventure, diving with these sharks is something to never forget. During this week we will dive with as much sharks as possible and teach you in a series of workshops not only how to dive with sharks but also about their biology, how to ID different species, a bit of history, threats and conservation.

The grey reef shark can be found single or in a group. Usually she is shy towards divers and to be found in places where the currents change the most.
