About Shark Island

Shark Island is a shark conservation nursery. The place can be explained as a picnic island with a difference. Shark Island offers a safe place for visitors of all ages to interact with the sharks. The conservatory offers an eco-tour that allows people to feed sharks, swim with them in a guarded environment, and visit the adjoining turtle conservation and education center. The experience is great for all ages, including little ones, as well as for those who can't swim. Bali Sharks project, just off Serangan Island carries a noble mission, namely to educate, spread awareness and better understand the species. The Bali Sharks project, founded by Hawaii-grown surfer Paul Friese, a conservationist committed to these apex predators was in collaboration with reformed poaching fishermen back in 2011, which led to more sharks being kept in the nursery. The place has a lot of food stalls and small cafes where you can enjoy a snack or a hearty meal.
