A couple of weeks ago they were spotted for the first time this season and now seen on most dives at Chumphon Pinnacle – The bull sharks are officially back!
It took the divers on the island quite a long time to realize that these greats are actually bull sharks and not the grey reef sharks they were thought to be in the beginning. But it’s definitely confirmed now. http://www.bigpinkshark.com/Bull%20Sharks%20of%20Chumphon.htm
Even with “only” your PADI Open Water qualification, you’re very likely to spot the amazing 2-3 metre sharks that tend to hang around 20-30 metres. However, you now have the perfect excuse to get your Advanced Open Water certificate, or even just do a Deep Adventure Dive, that will take you down to the depths and get you up close with the curious sharks instead of having to stick to 18 metres looking down on them. When you’re at their level, that is when you really get the chance of looking them right in the eye.
DJL Diving always make a great effort during shark season to arrange as many late afternoon trips on our rhib, on which the dive site can be reached in only 10-15 minutes. During these hours we get the opportunity of being the only boat on the dive site during “feeding time” for the sharks where they get even more curious and up close! This is truly an experience that will last you a life time.
Contact us to get more details of how you and your diving friends can be a part of an adrenaline filled afternoon, riding the waves, holding on for dear life on the rhib, only to be followed by a bull shark encounter and a beautiful sunset on the way back to the beach.
