circled by 4 reef sharks

Recommended Posts

I was on a major dive spot in Thailand (better to remain nameless)  and I was snorkeling .  I was being circled by 4 large black tip reef sharks ...............would they ever try anything?  my experience with that breed of shark is that they are timid.  and would under no circumstance try for a bite.  I do think they see alot of divers / snorkelers so they are accustomed to the people in the water.

The chance of a shark attack while scuba diving is almost nil.

I told the same about soi dogs. 😎

Depends on whether there is any blood in the water.

Nonsense.

 

Blacktip reef sharks grow to be about 1.80 meter, so wonder where the OP found 4 large ones.

Regardless of learning that the black tip and white tip reef sharks will not bother you, the first time you actually see one while diving or snorkeling will send a shiver through you.

I've done shark dives close to many black tips and no problem at all. Although at the time we were advised not to wave our arms around

are u upset i stood up for silje the norwegian diver who was killed by propeller blade by boat on ko tao?  maybe u could learn how to make a point?  4 large black tips are 4 large black tips. the question was . would they try to take an investigative bite.  not debate what large is.  have u ever met anybody that isnt politically correct ? are u british?

Glad to see you corrected your spelling, would hate to have to read your post in incorrect English.

 

No idea what you're on about, nor do I care very much. As mentioned, a blacktip will never be large, and no, they don't bite. That was not your question BTW, in spite of you claiming it was.
