While we don't have the shark problems of places like South Africa, there are a growing number of reports in my region about kayakers and their close encounters with sharks... including two kayakers being followed by a small group of 4-5ft sharks fairly close to where I kayak.

I don't know a great deal about sharks, and the research I have done hasn't suggested any obvious ways to avoid them... but given that I don't fish off the kayak, I would have thought that there would be little problem.

Having said that... does anyone here have a bit of experience or expertise that they could share in regard to limiting shark danger when sea kayaking in a subtropical environment?
