Thresher Sharks in Lembongan

By | Conservation, Underwater Life, Updates | No Comments

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.
