Here is a GoPro edit of when a few of us went free diving with blue Sharks out of Point Judith earlier this summer. They were actually quite friendly - like dogs almost.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3cBQ8tEDmd4

Getting up close and personal with 5 different Blue Sharks.  It was an awesome experience.  

This service is offered by Captain Charlie of Snappa Charters out of Point Judith, RI.  Captain Charlie was great, very personable and knowledgeable.

In the tank with sharks at Manly Aquarium, very tentative at first but soon became relaxed. The beady little white eyes got to me at first, but they were beautiful creatures. Great Whites next!

In the Dominican Republic I got the chance to snorkle with sharks and sting rays it was soo amazing. Even though they were just nurse sharks it was still nerve wrecking!

I swam with sharks in an aquarium, last summer in a Guadalajara zoo, I was so scared but I wanted a lot to see near the sharks, so I dressed a special swimsuit and entered like in a glass box with an expert and then we gave food to the sharks.

My favourite animal is a shark, so when I got the chance to swim with them I couldn't contain myself. It was in a strap cage in an aquarium filled with reef, brown and sand tiger to name a few. One day I will swim with great whites without the cage

 It was a really good experience, snorkeling with Sharks. It was difficult initially to adjust to the technique of snorkeling 

I would love to have gotten closer or even touched the sharks. So I will probably do it again but somewhere else with different types of sharks.

Biggest dream of mine was to swim with my favourite animals - sharks. November 2015 i swam with Black Tip Reef sharks at Maya Bay in Thailand. Up at 6am with only just the four of us we headed out to an empty bay and snorkeled over to where the sharks normally swim, there were so many, big, medium, small. The following day i also went diving and saw some more! My first ever shark encounter.

Also April 2016 I swam with various sharks at the London Aquarium (See Video)!

Well I can't really swim so this was kind of daunting for me.  They may not have been carnivorous (they were whale sharks) but that doesn't mean I wasn't filled with a little fear when I accidentally swam too close and felt it's fin slide across my stomach.

Absolutely amazing experience to see these creatures up close. We were lucky enough to have 2 great whites swimming around us on the day when they had gone months without a sighting! Know how to use a re-breather first as people who didn't seemed to struggle when down in the cage with multiple people, seeing the sharks, fear, adrenaline etc.

Went snorkeling out over the coral reef in Belize and although I was told there may be sharks I was assured they are harmless and just feed off shellfish on the sea bed.  Doesn't matter if you know this when one appears out of no where directly below you and it is the same size as you you take a deep breath and let out a muffled swear through the snorkel.
