Sharks are predators that often prey on small fish, lobsters, shrimp, crabs, squid, and even sea snakes, as well as birds. Sharks actually rarely harm humans, but to maintain safety, before entering the pool, make sure there are no wounds on your body, because sharks are very sensitive to the smell of blood which can make them aggressive. But because they are used to being close to humans, the sharks in captivity in Karimunjawa are quite tame. Even tourists can enter the pool to just swim or take pictures together.
For those of you who want to test your adrenaline, this place can swim with tame sharks. This can be a thrilling as well as exciting sensation. You can also take pictures with sharks and starfish in certain pools. For those of you who can’t swim, there’s no need to worry because this captivity is quite shallow. As long as you do activities with the sharks in the pool, rescue workers and Karimun Jawa tour guides are always on guard at the edge of the pool.
So, if you are interested in Karimun Jawa, don’t forget to stop by and take a photo together at the Karimunjawa Shark Captivity.
