Leopard sharkMost scuba divers love seeing a shark. But even with the information available today, some people are still afraid of them. There are still people who believe that anyone who goes scuba diving may be attacked by these monsters! Of course, the truth is that sharks have no interest in humans. Incidents involving humans and sharks are extremely rare, and usually a case of mistaken identity. Surfers and those who go spearfishing are most at risk – but not scuba divers. There are several species of sharks in Thailand, including the largest species of fish, the gentle giant known as the Whale Shark. Almost every dive with a shark is a memory to cherish.
