Shark diving needs to be practiced intelligently.Both dive operators and divers should realize they bear responsibility when they choose to offer or partake in shark diving. Both parties must take the responsibility very seriously and take measures to ensure that no unnecessary accidents or incidents occur – to the sharks or the divers. This is critical in protecting the few places left on earth where sharks still thrive, as well as our continued ability to dive with them in those locations. Responsible dive operators should make sure that people not only know the risks involved, but are also taught how to behave and how to respond in various situations to minimize the likelihood of a negative incident. Responsible divers should be at the appropriate skill level and well prepared to dive with sharks. The following outlines our collective best practices, accumulated from thousands of hours in the water with sharks. This may seem lengthy, but we think it is important to be thorough - and as careful as possible! We recommend taking some time to review this before shark diving.
