Shark Diving in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Borneo

No, they didn't watch an episode of Glee, look closely - it's the sign for SHARKS!Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Borneo: Downbelow’s office staff was at the Beach House last weekend for the Project AWARE event, and also managed a shark dive.

The blacktip reef sharks are so regularly spotted in Kota Kinabalu’s TAR Park, that it’s possible to schedule a shark dive with us with pretty decent odds of spotting one or two.

On this dive the office staff were treated to the sighting of 2 rather large blacktip reef sharks at the usual spot.

The sighting of the large sharks caused a bit of an adrenaline rush for our office girls, in spite of knowing that blacktips are timid and rarely pose a risk to humans.

Our resident PADI Course Director Richard regularly spot the blacktips and is collecting data on them. ┬áHe’s spotted over 15 individuals over the last few years.

Their increase in numbers is a great excuse to dive for TAR Park divers and for shark diving in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Borneo.
