Sharks of Raja Ampat Meridian Adventure Dive

The reefs of Raja Ampat are home to the black tip, white tip and grey reef sharks. The rich ecosystem of the area makes it the ideal hunting ground for these predators, who can be seen patrolling almost every single reef.

While common to spot these sharks gently gliding over the reef or sleeping on a shelf in the case of the white tip, there is also the chance to spot, the much rarer, silky and silver tip sharks making their way elegantly over the reef. Reef sharks are in abundance in the area and are even known to gently swim in shallow beach waters in the Wayag area, where divers can snorkel with them. Diving with them is perfectly safe, but, as with any other apex predator, it is important to respect these sharks and not antagonise them.
