Shark Airport

The sloping, terrace-like area of the reef, found at 20 meters, is the highlight of this dive site. This is where several whitetip reef sharks can be spotted all at once. This dive site is very remote and only accessible by a liveaboard boat.

Famous for the whitetip reef sharks, this is the main attraction found at Shark Airport, but you can also see other shark species.
