Barbados: Sharks


When planning a trip to an island destination such as Barbados, you may well be concerned about the presence of sharks. Rest assured that there are no sharks close to shore off Barbados and therefore no reports of any shark attacks.

Some species of shark are caught out to sea by local fishermen. Occasionally on the island's north and north-east coast a shark (usually a Tiger shark) will be spotted out in the Atlantic Ocean, however most swimming and sea bathing in Barbados is done on the more tranquil west and south coasts.

If you go scuba diving you may see some small non-aggressive reef sharks.

So no swimming with sharks off Barbados, but you can enjoy the company of some more friendly wildlife if you go swimming with our sea turtles!
