Sharks in Jamaica

Somebody keeps coming to my site, with the search inquiry of whether there are many sharks in Jamaica. Rest assured, if you are going to Jamaica you will not be seeing any sharks in their waters.  They do have nurse sharks, if you go looking for them – a nurse shark looks like a giant catfish. It does not have sharp teeth, though if you grab one unexpectedly, it might hurt you.

Enjoy your trip to Jamaica. When I asked the same question many years ago, I was told “Jamaica has no wildlife that hurts people, relax Mon!”  I don’t know if its true, but it did put me at ease. 🙂
