Freediving with sharks

Couldn’t it be amazing to freedive with sharks?

Tiger sharks have a man-eaters reputation but we don’t know so much about them. We can find them in tropical waters, they are usually between 3 and 4 meters and can be impressive. Eusebio and Christina experienced several freedives with tiger sharks in the Bahamas: “Eye contact was incredibly powerful when interacting with the tiger sharks”. They were surrounded by 6 sharks at the same time but they loved this sensation. They were able to observe sharks’ behaviors, for example, they noted that this is a solitary species.
