Shipwrecks and sharks?
Related to diving shipwrecks I guess.
Ive been in the ocean all of my life. Sharks are an integral part of it. There home
Im curious though
Has anyone had any problems with sharks while diivng on any of the 1715 wrecks? If so, what kinds?
Do they get curious with the blowers and the dredges or stay their distance?
(buddies caught a 12 foot tiger and 8 foot hammerhead off the beach in the last few days, sparked my curiosity. Ive never personally been hassled..knock on wood)

No. We dont see very many sharks on the 1715 fleet.
If we do they are usually nurse sharks. I have never seen a bull shark diving for treasure, but i am sure it is coming.
I have seen a lot of sharks lobster diving and spear fishing but not treasure diving. I think the boat motor noise scares them off

Chagy..Ive lived in Boca the last 5 years. The shark run is just absurd. Literatly out on a boat drifting and you just see hundreds of sharks under you. Its amazing. Sketchy, but amazing.
Booty: Thats what I figured. They like thrashing swimmers, but figured noises would scare them off. Bet someone has a really good story though haha

Cabin wreck, Douglas Beach, and the power plant are the places we have seen the most sharks. I always wondered the same thing when I started diving as a kid. I thought there would be sharks everywhere, but I quickly found out that is not the case.

Booty..go dive Canaveral Shoals or Symrna haha
The power plant, that place just looks sketchy to dive. Ive fished there commercially before and no thanks, like a mini Boca Grande

I saw two inside the surf line yesterday while metal detecting. Very common sight at New Smyrna & Canaveral.

If I saw a bull shark diving for treasure, I would let him have it!

I dont know. Just getting stories from folks on the boards. I figured there was at least one good one, but so far nothing. If it counts, I almost got owned by a tiger in cape hatteras surfing...decided at the LAST second to turn away. Crystal clear water too
