Every year in March and April hundreds of Grey Reef Sharks gather in Palau for their annual mating aggregation. Taking advantage of this event, the Micronesian Shark Foundation developed Shark Week in 2003. Shark Week provides an opportunity for divers to experience high voltage shark diving with field experts such as Dr. Mark Meekan of A.I.M.S.
Shark week includes 5-6 days of diving at some of the best sites in Palau, evening lectures by various experts, conservation advocates and sponsors, video presentations. And, a closing GALA dinner with gourmet local food and drinks, raffle drawing for Shark Week participants, summary speeches by panel of experts and sponsors, and the first airin of the current year Shark Week DVD.
The next shark week is scheduled for 19-26 March 2011. Contact us if you would like more information on the 2010 Shark Week program or if you would like to register for the event.
