Thresher Sharks

Thresher Shark

The high season (July to October) is normally highlighted by the chance to see the Mola (Sunfish). Though this has been true for this high season, we have also had increased sightings of thresher sharks; another amazing and rare creature!

Thresher sharks have been seen around Lembongan before, but it was a rare occasion and often deep (30 – 40 meters). Through the months of September and October, the chance of seeing a thresher has jumped up dramatically.

These thresher sharks have been spotted shallower than normal, around 20 – 30 meters, cursing by our divers on the north coast of Nusa Penida. Not all the thresher sharks have been spotted that deep. One was spotted during a PADI Discover Scuba Dive and another was spotted during dive 4 of the PADI Open Water course.

Lets take a look at some interesting facts about Threshers

  • How to identity a thresher shark
  • How do thresher sharks hunt

The Lazy Wobbegong Shark

Among the many creatures that can be spotted around Lembongan and Penida, one interesting one is the Wobbegong Shark. As of late, we have been seeing more and more of these strange creatures.

This got Kipp thinking;

  • Are these sharks seasonal?
  • Do they migrate?
  • Where does their name came from?
  • How do they move around and hunt?

Let’s dive in and help Kipp answer these questions!

Little Creatures of Lembongan

Little Creatures in Lembongan

Lembongan is very much know for it’s large creatures. A lot of divers come to the area to dive with the manta rays and the molas. As the mola season comes to a close, let us have a look at the cool little creatures that we find around the Lembongan and Penida dive sites.

When the currents are calm on the north coast of Nusa Penida, this offer an amazing opportunity to have a good look around the soft corals for some crazy nudibranchs, shrimps and crabs.

Some of our favorite creatures that we like to point out to our guests are; orangutan crabs, hairy squat lobsters, ‘sexy’ shrimps and whip coral shrimp.

Although these small creatures seem hard to find at first, once you know where to look, they are quiet common here.

Below you will found some information about each of these creatures, what they look like and where to find them. We hope with this information, you will be able to find some of these creatures on your next dive in Lembongan. Read More
