Thread: Ocean swimming

    Default Ocean swimming

    so believe it or not I have a very unnatural fear of sharks. Thanks JAWS )Do I need to be concerned when swimming at the SA resort?
    At most beaches I can even go over my waist because if the fear.... What does the resort have to stop them from coming to make me their lunch?

    Thanks in advance

    Dana (and Nick but he isnt afraid at all lol)

    I would say no, you do not need to worry. The swimming area is roped off and you can see the bottom. I don't believe Jamaica is big on shark attacks like the Eastern seaboard of the US is.

    I really wouldn't worry about it, there doesn't seem to be many recorded attacks. The last was on a fisherman off shore in 2013. I even did the night snorkeling, which is creepy as hell but awesome too. I was more worried I would get stung by jellyfish than get bit by a shark, since they told use they'd be really painful.

    I have never once been concerned at CSA! Never even crossed my mind until I saw the question and the link above popped up in Google immediately.

    If it makes you feel better, most attacks happen in even less water than you're generally comfortable with.

    Jokes (and truth nuggets) aside, you'll be fine. I would learn to shuffle your feet along the bottom due to rays, if you don't already.

    Been to Swept Away a number of times and always dive. Have seen sharks but only Nurse sharks laying on the bottom and we have been 6' from them without them even moving. I'd say you are a lot more likely to get hit by a tumbling rock where you are standing than even seeing a shark while swimming!!! letting alone getting attacked by one!
