Full description
Visit the east part of the island on the beach with a natural lemon shark rookery, which is a light-brown colored shark, or sand-colored when in its natural environment. Choose to stay on the beach and watch the sharks with binoculars or get in the water and watch them from up close.  The lemon shark is medium to large shark and is not a threat to people, but can be a danger to other ocean animals. Its scientific name is Negaprion Brevirostris. The average length of a lemon shark is about 2.5 to 3 meters. Some of the largest lemon sharks measured about 3.4 meters. These sharks grow about 0.50 centimeters per year. After spending 60 minutes swimming with and learning about the sharks you will be taken back to your lodge or hotel where you were picked up.

We had private tour to Shark Bay with our guide Chan. He was extremely kind and helpful. He took us into a calm place when we could observe sharks in thier natural environment from very close. It was really fantastic experience. I can highly recommend this for everyone :) Special thanks for Chan, you're awesome!
