Caribbean travelers beware of shark waters

This information is in no way to scare you from traveling to the Caribbean. The Caribbean beaches and tropical climate makes it a getaway vacation hotspot. But you must be aware that shark attacks can happen here of recent.

It is an unusual occurrence to see shark sightings occur in so many Caribbean countries. Plus, in such a short space of time. You can spread awareness of what is currently happening.

Here are some Caribbean destinations that had shark sightings close to shore.


The island of Dominica has seen recent shark sightings and captures. Dominica is north of Martinique and south of the French-speaking island of Guadeloupe. It still remains puzzling what is causing the sharks to go ashore. In so doing they go out of their natural breeding grounds. Dominica is not prone to any Caribbean shark attack nor shark sightings. A tourism activity that is famous in Dominica is whale watching.

St. Kitts and Nevis

On the island of St.Kitts and Nevis, there have also been several shark sightings and captures. There was also a report of a shark attack in St. Kitts. It remains unclear what caused these sharks on separate occasions to go close to shore. The sightings occurred within a short space of time. Once sharks come close to shore they become prey rather than their natural nature as a predator. In such a vulnerable situation humans can catch and devour them easily.


The shark sightings didn’t stop in those islands. It recently happened again on the island of Grenada. Grenada is north of Trinidad and Tobago and south of St.Vincent and the Grenadines. The shark found there measured about 10 feet. Residents encountered, captured, and gutted that huge fish. Researchers will carry out research using the shark’s stomach. They will try to determine what caused the recent surge in shark sightings. They are examining the inner parts to find a reason for the shark coming close to the Caribbean shore. Whether the shark was sick or had a parasite or whether global warming is to blame.

From recent reports, there are an unusual amount sharks in the Caribbean waters coming close to shore. Protect yourself and stay safe, but do enjoy your tropical Caribbean beach vacation. Whether you are swimming, diving, kayaking, jet skiing, sailing, surfing, and kite surfing be safe. Take all the necessary precautions, be alert, and stay vigilant.
