Gili Trawangan is well known for its great diving, and one thing that a lot of divers love to see underwater is sharks! Here in the Gilis we have several dive sites where you can see white tip and black tip reef sharks. These harmless sharks are beautiful and exciting to see and in recent years we have seen an increase in baby reef sharks due to a scheme that has been introduced with the help of the Gili Eco Trust to establish a protected area for these amazing creatures. Many of these cute baby sharks will stay hidden under ledges for months at a time, so if you know where to look you can see them regularly and watch their progress!
Our dive sites each day at Big Bubble are chosen based on request, so if you would love to see sharks in their natural habitat just let us know and we will do our best to find them for you!
Any Open Water certified diver can also do an ‘Adventure Deep’ dive to go to 30metres where you have a higher chance of seeing the bigger adult sharks, so just send us an email to find out more!
