After pickup from your hotel in Santa Maria, drive to the eastern part of the island of Sal.

Upon arrival at the lemon shark nursery, see the lemon sharks in their natural environment. Choose between staying on the beach and observing the sharks with binoculars or going into the water and seeing them up-close. Lemon sharks do not represent a threat to humans. If you go into the water, please be aware that you will need proper shoes for walking on the rocky surface (available to rent on the spot for €2 per person).
