There used to be shark sitings at Smyrna. I wonder if that is still the case.

New Smyrna Beach in Florida is the shark attack capital of the world according to ISAF. It is estimated that anyone who has swam there has been within 10ft of a shark.

When we first moved to The Villages we took teen grandson to New Smyrna Beach and he had a blast in the water for hours. When we got home his mother called and said; Mom, you didn't know New Smyrna Beach is the shark capital, did you????

I am known for worrying. I didn't know.

Sharks tend to gather where the fish are, around inlets and piers. Stay at least a mile away to reduce the risk.

You caught a lucky break! But I think they are mainly in the inlet part, which is where they allow dogs.


We went over there with friends and specifically checked out the dog part of the beach. People had their dogs on long ropes so they could swim out into the water. It wasn't till we got home that I read about the sharks. Glad we didn't have Crosby with us.
