    no, it's not really dangerous, the black tip sharks are small (1m to 1,50m) and won't attack bigger humans (with oxygen bottles a diver is looking much bigger...) For the grey ones, it's a bit more impressing (up to 2m size....) But they're all used to see a lot of divers here everyday, and there was never an incident...

    I saw a blue shark, once, that the boatswain on the ship said was about 3m. The boatswain said he didn't like people fishing for sharks (shark fin soup notwithstanding), because they are important to the health of the ocean. This was 40 years ago.

    Truthfully, sharks aren't Dangerous if they Are respected and not bothered. Nice shot though
