Shark enthusiasts are invited to enjoy a shark themed week full of adrenalin-packed activities as the Micronesian Shark Foundation (MSF) holds it 6th annual shark week at the Fish n Fins dive shop, in Palau between March 27 and April 3 2008.

The Micronesian Shark Foundation is a Palauan-based, non-profit foundation whose goal is to research and monitor the many sharks of Palau as well as scientific shark data collection.

Between February and April, hundreds of grey reef sharks migrate to the waters of Palau to mate. This generates a fabulous opportunity for shark lovers to dive with the world famous sharks of Palau and to participate in data collection. Following a dedicated day of shark diving, a full evening’s program of shark themed seminars and activities are conducted at the dive shop.

This year’s featured guests are Rob Stewart, the Canadian creator of the award winning documentary Sharkwater – http://www.sharkwater.com/Rob_Stewart_biography.htm – Dr. Mark Meekan from AIMS (Australian Institute of Marine Science), Captain William Marhoffer from the US Coastguard and many key people from the Republic of Palau.

Packages start from $1150 per person and include the following: 5 days dedicated shark diving (2 tanks per day) with lunch provided on a beautiful sandy Rock Island beach; 7 nights hotel accommodations (double occupancy including transportation); evening shark seminars; shark photography competition; diving newly discovered shark locations around Palau; shark week 2008 T-Shirt; DVD containing footage of the entire weeks events; information pack containing 3D dive site information together with information about our guest speakers and the weeks itinerary.
