IT’S THE KRAKEN! Shark Diving: Should You or Shouldn’t You? 9

If you are scuba diving with sharks swimming around you, what can you do?

In a general sense, in addition to whale sharks, other sharks prefer to eat seals, dolphins and turtles. People wearing scuba gear are not usually listed as prey unless they are very hungry. But that is highly unlikely. Sharks are often curious about their surroundings, and they often familiarize themselves with what they encounter by temporarily biting people. Some underwater photographers have been injured by sharks moving their mouths up and down. Fortunately, the photographer found no serious injuries. If the shark wants to attack you, how to identify it? Professional deep-sea explorers, who have long been scuba divers, have suggested that if the shark swims in a gentle and calm way, it is examining whether this mythical underwater creature is the preferred food. In this case, most of the time, stay calm and wait a few seconds. A few seconds later, the shark swam away. But what if, unfortunately, you encounter an angry shark? You can push yourself away from the shark’s mouth with your hand.

If you want scuba diving with sharks they are sites:

Whale sharks: Yucatan peninsula, Mexico

Whale sharks, or the world’s largest sharks, are 40 feet long, weigh up to 50 tons, and have mouths that are 5 feet wide when opened — yet they only eat plankton, and it’s safe to swim with them. The black-and-white speckled behemoth comes to Punta Sam every summer (mid-may to September) to hunt for food. You can go snorkeling with a whale shark for a day or more.

Lemon sharks: off the coast of Florida, USA
The small shark gets its name from its yellow skin. Most lemon sharks are no more than 12 feet long, but they attack people — often out of fear rather than intent. Lemon sharks are commonly found off the southeastern coast of the United States and in the gulf of Mexico. Florida reef is a favorite home for lemon sharks, and the Cupid dive center north of west palm beach offers a one-day dive trip there.

Hammerhead sharks: Galapagos islands, Ecuador

It’s almost impossible to sneak up on a hammerhead shark — its eyes are positioned at either end of a prominent hammerhead, giving it a 360-degree view. If you want to see it in the ocean, you’d better ask for expert help. Quasar Expeditions professionals tracked the exact locations of hammerhead sharks, including Wolf island. On the Galapagos island chain in Ecuador, divers can swim with groups of hundreds of hammerhead sharks. The sharks, which are 14 feet long, are in the area all year round. The diving expedition is an optional add-on to the Quasar Expeditions expedition, a week-long scuba diving trip to the Galapagos.

Bull shark: bekaa atoll, Fiji

There are few sea creatures as intimidating as the bull shark. The carnivorous bull shark is 11.5 feet long and weighs 500 pounds. Scientists consider bull sharks to be the most aggressive and predatory species in the ocean. There are plenty of warnings to stay away from bull sharks, but if the dangers of the deep are tempting, sign up for the beka adventure divers to spend a day with sharks in Fiji’s protected waters. Although bull sharks arrive as early as mid-may, June is the peak season for watching migratory animals. Grey reef sharks, Pacific blacktip, whitetip, falktip lemon, silver tip, tawny nurse and Fiji tiger sharks are also seen here at this time of year.

Tiger sharks: the Bahamas

Tiger sharks are second only to great white sharks in their attacks on humans, and their aggression is well deserved. Let alone people, even smaller fish, tiger sharks go for it. Tiger sharks are slow to color and can chew on anything. Studies of tiger sharks have found that they have everything from car license plates to used tires in their bellies, making them known as “ocean trash cans.” The bahamian shark diving company offers a seven-day cruise in a 65-foot dive boat to the island of grand bahama for scuba trips. In addition to tiger sharks, you can also see Caribbean reef sharks and ray rays.

Whitetip shark: oahu, Hawaii, USA

These nocturnal sharks sleep in reef burrows during the day. Whitetip sharks are tiny, measuring no more than 5.5 feet long, and usually share their habitat with their mates. Divers stumbled upon a cave where several whitetip fish were stacked together sleeping.
