Monad Shoal

Monad Shoal is widely recognized as the premier dive site globally for observing the elusive and timid Thresher Sharks. These magnificent creatures, typically residing in the depths, frequent this location in the early morning for the remarkable cleaning station experience.

The cleaning stations at this site attract Thresher Sharks throughout the year, making it an ideal destination for encountering these rare beings. To maximize your chances of encountering these awe-inspiring creatures, it is recommended to embark on early morning dives.

As an advanced dive site, the use of nitrox is highly advised to extend bottom time, allowing for more opportunities to witness the majestic Thresher sharks. These captivating creatures can often be spotted just before or during sunrise at depths ranging from 22 to 27 meters.

The cleaning fishes, including the bluestreak and the moon cleaner wrasse, have transformed Monad Shoal into a prime cleaning station for the Thresher Sharks. Through their meticulous cleaning processes, these fishes rid the Threshers of ectoparasites and gnathiids, ensuring their skin, gills, and mouth remain immaculate.

Visibility in these pristine waters reaches up to 13 meters, providing panoramic views of the underwater realm. With a maximum depth of 27 meters, this dive site offers an unparalleled experience for advanced and expert divers alike.

Immerse yourself in the enchanting world of Monad Shoal and witness the extraordinary Thresher Sharks in their natural habitat.
