The east coast of every country and island in that part of the Indian Ocean has a problem with sharks. SA, Mocambique, Kenya, Reunion and Mada. FD seems okay. The main spot there is over a shallow reef. Further up the coast the inshore channels start and the water gets a lot dirtier. The west coast doesn't seem to have the same shark problem.

Hi (: I grew up in Madagaskar, and we used to sail out to the reef in Tulear(west coast) to snorkel. A few times, we had guide with us, and we never heard of any danger with sharks, neighter sharkvisit our some sort of shark attack.. (: There might be sharks outside the reef, but I think its pretty safe out there!
