Monad Shoal

Monad Shoal is considered the best dive site in the world to see the rare and timid Thresher Sharks. These sharks normally live in the deep but regularly come here early in the morning for the cleaning station.

The cleaning stations bring the rare thresher sharks to this site year-round. Only on early morning dives will you get the chance to see these beauties.
