Sharks are thought to be widely misunderstood by marine biologists everywhere. However, people still view sharks as more of a threat than they actually are. So, naturally, TravelSafe wanted to bring you a fiew videos to leave you feeling a more positive vibe towards these underwater creatures. 


For every negative there is a positive, so we thought we would bring you 4 awesome videos of shark encounters that ended well for everyone involved. 

GoPro does an amazing job putting these videos together. Shark diving is becoming more and more popular and it is pretty incredible to watch. 

GoPro: Whaleshark Dive in the Philippines

This father and son dive with giant whale sharks in Oslob, Cebu. While whalesharks don't have teeth, it is pretty admirable for such a young boy to dive into the ocean with such a large creature. 

GoPro: Petting A Tiger Shark 

Yeah, you read right. In this short GoPro Video, you watch Cameron Nimmo and Mickey Smith snuggle with sharks.

GoPro: Director's Cut - Shark Riders 

Roberta Mancino and Mark Healey show you how their worlds are ruled by the ocean. They talk about their love for diving and even show you how they swim along with sharks a little over halfway through. Marine life doesn't scare them. It's what they live for. 


GoPro: A Blonde and a Great White Shark

Ocean Ramsey is no joke. She is called the shark whisperer and wears that title proudly. This shark conservationist takes it to a whole new level as she plunges into the ocean and swims alongside of a great white shark. 


What did you think of these divers get close and personal with these unpredictable creatures? Have you been wondering if you can safely swim in the ocean this year?
