Shark Attacks

Is it Safe to Enter the Water?

This is a question every person should think of before entering the water. Once you step in the water, you alone are responsible for anything that happens to you regarding sharks. Sharks are a rapidly ever-changing danger that exists if you choose to enter the water. No one can predict what a shark will do, when will it attack, what it will attack, and the damage it will do. Sharks are so unpredictable every known government worldwide follows a swim at your risk policy regarding sharks.

Welcome to

Shark Attack Survivors

Over the years we have been here to assist other survivors through the rough times of recovery. We have tried to provide information to help others avoid dangerous shark situations. We even help save some of the shark species that injured us from having their fins chopped off so someone can enjoy a bowl of shark fin soup.

If you are a survivor with a question, problem, or a survivor willing to help a new survivor deal with the trauma associated with a hostile shark attack-related incident.

Please take a minute and Contact Us.
