Highlights
    What to Expect
    You will be picked up from your hotel by a professional guide and after an informative transfer of approximately 25 minutes you will arrive at the eastern part of the island, the natural nursery of the lemon sharks, where you can see the lemon sharks in their natural environment. You can choose to stay on the beach and observe the sharks with binoculars or go in the water and see them up-close. These sharks don't represent a threat to humans. If you would like to go in the water, you will need proper shoes for walking on rocky surfaces. It is also possible to rent them on the spot. Please note that since it's nature we cannot guarantee shark-sightings.

    We came here as part of an island tour. You will need aqua shoes, as the sea bed is very rocky,so if you haven't already got some don't worry you can hire some crocs for 2 euros. You will wade out up to your thighs, so make sure you have appropriate clothing. The guide will

    It's not often that you'll go paddling in the sea and find sharks, albeit only little ones, swimming around your ankles. The nature lesson is certainly interesting, but the experience is essentially a good bit of fun. Do it!

    A great experience to walk in waters with (baby) sharks just inches from your feet. Wonderful to see these beautiful creatures up close, and if you're lucky, 20 metres or so away you might see the adults. Completely safe for children and adults alike, but note that you'll be
