Sharks are my best friends

Jim Abernethy, a professional diver, has been swimming with sharks almost every day for over 40 years at Tiger Beach in the Bahamas.
Jim may be surrounded at any moment by up to 30 tiger, reef or lemon sharks. Jim is able to have a special relationship with these predators of the sea, who swim up to Jim for affectionate nose-rubs.

Listen to the Outlook podcast for more information about Jim's relationship with sharks.
