Grey Reef shark

The grey reef shark is one of the most common reef sharks in the Indo-Pacific and is frequently seen cruising shallow coral reefs, especially near steep drop-offs. These animals may have a slightly white-tipped first dorsal fin, however, they are clearly distinguishable from other shark species because they lack the distinct black or white markings on the tips of their fins and are a more uniform grey color. These agile predators are fast swimmers and feed mostly on bony fish and cephalopods that they hunt along the reef.

Diving with grey reef sharks is always exciting as they are often times very curious about divers when they first enter the water and will venture quite close to take a look. Don’t worry though, these sharks are not aggressive towards humans and will get bored of you quickly.
