Tip 1: use common sense. This means that you need to avoid swimming near schools of fish, avoiding areas with fishing boats, as well as areas with diving seabirds.

Tip 2: Don’t swim in deep channels, troughs between sandbars and underwater drop-offs. Fish gather in these areas, meaning that they will also attract sharks.
Tip 3: Stay out of water that makes I hard to see what is beneath or near you.
Tip 4: Use the buddy system and never swim alone. Sharks tend to attack stragglers or animals that are alone.

Tip 5: Don’t swim at dawn or dusk. This is the time sharks are most likely to be feeding close to shore.
Tip 6: Don’t bring your bling into the water. These shiny objects gleam like fish scales and will attract a shark’s attention.
