I went to see shark bay. And we had a really nice and professional sea biologist with us to tell us all about sharks. Los of knowledge and a fantastic experience to stand within 10-15 meters of 6-8 lemon sharks.

Yes. The lemon sharks are usually around for most of the year.but even in main season, it's never a guarantee you would see them.
