    Exclamation Shark & pwc

    two days ago while riding my pwc, I saw below me a shark spent about 2-2.5 m.Iba at low speed 15 to 20 mph, really impressed me as also was accompanied by another person but in my pwc, accelerated until I got to the port.
    I wanted to ask:
    -How of our PWC are exposed to attack by a shark?
    - If you have had any experience of encounters with sharks

    We just left Fort Morgan, Al. We had dolphin encounters everyday we road. Some would jump and swim right next to the pwc, others would check us out then leave, and some groups paid us no attention. Both the ocean and the bay were the same experience, however the bay was brown and the dolphins were only visible on the surface. Never felt threatened. I did some snorkling off the back of the Doo and saw several species of fish, even some small sharks, but did not encounter anything bigger thn the dolphins.

    That dolphin video is awesome. So close... crazy. Have they gotten close enough to reach down and touch?

    Goes back to the saying why do sharks circle there food. Because they like there food clean. OU812 if I saw that shark off my ski I would have the for sale on her when I got back in.

    That was about as close as they got to us but we had dozens of encounters the week we were there.

    If you guys check out the "fishing" section, there's a guy who posted a vid of the attack that happened to him in the Pensacola area...
