Hi,

I completed my open water this year because my partner wanted to do it, I have since done 4 dives in Dominican republic which were great. I really enjoy diving but have a fear of sharks. I'm going to masa alam in Egypt next year on a diving holiday and just need to know what I should do if I see a shark or one approaches, I'm not worried about the reef sharks but the bigger ones. From research I may see oceanic white tips hammer heads or a tiger.

Thanks

Just remember that sharks very rarely attack humans! If you see Oceanics or Tiger sharks count yourself lucky - do not panic or rush to the surface. Just be calm and stay safe - it is very unusual for an unprovoked attack on divers! Your dive centre will probably brief you for appropriate/respectful shark behaviour :)

Stay calm and stay down. It was such a rush first time I saw an Oceanic!
