Have you ever seen a shark in the ocean while at the beach?


Just last week a man took a photo of a large fin not far from swimmers in waist deep water in Avon, "N.C. tourist captures fin of shark in photo"(The Virginian Pilot). The picture was shown to a National Park Service ranger, who estimated the shark to be 15 to 20 feet long and either a great white or tiger shark.

    I'm with you. Every summer I hear about sightings and attacks. I know the chances are remote but it still creeps me out.

    Wow! The closest I've come to a large shark, is when I watched Jaws and that was enough to make me cautious in the ocean - Did anyone continue swimming after seeing the seal attack?

    That is sooo scary to me. I've seen is a large dolphin leap in the air just 5 feet from me in waist deep water, which made me fall backwards as I saw the fin first.
