They are also known to swim up to divers and demand food.

These are nurse sharks. Blacktip reef sharks usually run away in terror if they spot anything resembling a diver, unfortunately.

Maybe all mouths but Samui does not have a lot of rivers.

Phew that's a relief .. I'd share my sarnies with them but wouldn't give them money in case they went and bought booze or drugs with it ..

How long time has it been since such sharks has been seen so close to Samui?

Seems like marine life love the lack of tourists.

 

But now I'm not sure I dare to swim near Samui anymore since I'm afraid of sharks lol. 

 

Watching Jaws as a young kid spooked me 😂

there are no dangerous sharks in Thailand.

rumors say that here were Bull sharks 10+ years ago, but since then local fishermen have saved tourists from these potentially dangerous sharks.

now the fishermen are saving tourists from harmless sharks such as Black Tips, Bamboos and Zebras.

unfortunately the nasty government prohibited to hunt the Whale sharks, so the fishermen can't help us here thus we have to swim in the sea infested with these harmless predators.
