OUR DAILY LIFE

As a participant, you will spend 5 days a week from 8 AM till 5 PM with our research team. Our mornings are spent mostly exploring the magical underwater world and our afternoons are spent either in the office inputting and analyzing data or in the field doing community work. 

We are all working very closely together and have a team/family-like atmosphere at the project. You will be a critical member of the team and may be in charge of various data collection projects depending on your personal interests, goals, and length of stay.

Office time doesn’t mean that you will be sitting in an office all day. The ocean and the whole island is our office (lucky us!) so we could literally be anywhere. We are a very ambitious organization with big dreams. To make sure we reach our goals, every day has a theme so you and the other members of the research team know exactly what to focus on.

Transfert de l'aéroport Ngurah Rai International Airport

Arriving in Bali 

Our lovely driver 'Gede' will be waiting for you in the international arrivals area of Bali Denpasar Airport. He will have a sign with your name so you can easily recognize him. Sometimes you are able to catch the boat to Gili Air on the same day, and sometimes you need to stay 1 night in  Bali depending on your arrival time. 

If you are not able to travel to Gili Air on your arrival date, we would recommend you to book a hotel either in Kuta / Denpasar (close to the airport) or Sanur (halfway between the airport and the port) or close to Padang Bai (from here the boat will leave to Gili Air). In this case, Komang will take you to your hotel, pick you up the next day, and drive you to the port in Padang Bai. The boat makes four stops in total, one in Gili Trawangan, one in Gili Meno, one in Gili Air, and finally one in Lombok. The crew will let you know which stop is Gili Air.

Arriving in Lombok 

It doesn’t matter what time you arrive in Lombok you can always make it on the same day to Gili Air. Our lovely driver Bagus will wait for you at the airport and bring you to Teluk Nara. From the airport its around 1.5 hour drive depending on the traffic. In Teluk Nara a private speedboat is waiting for you and will drive you to Gili Air in 10 minutes. 

Logement

What makes our conservation project truly special is our island family. All our shark warriors live and work together, creating a close-knit and caring atmosphere at our HQ. We are passionate about making everyone who joins our island family feel a genuine sense of belonging and comfort.

Our HQ is located just a short two-minute bike ride away from the beach. We have five lovely traditional bungalows that were renovated in December 2022, with a beautiful ocean theme. Each bungalow has hot and cold water, air conditioning (A/C), and a safety deposit box for your convenience and safety.

During your stay with us, you will be sharing a bungalow with maximum three other ocean lovers. If you prefer more privacy, you can choose to book a private bungalow for an additional $20 USD per night. To find out if there are any private bungalows available during your requested program dates, just send us a message. We are always happy to help!

Aliments & Boissons

We always start the day together by having breakfast at our headquarters. We make our own bread, yogurt, granola, and jam and will serve you the best (vegan) pancakes! Furthermore, fresh fruit is always available as a range of cakes and cookies. 

P.s. Do you have any dietary requests? No problem, we can cater to (almost) all diets!
