Horacio Luis Guerrero was able to capture this video of a Bull Shark roaming around the waters of Amigos del Mar dock during the night. He was only able to capture one of the two fairly large Bull Sharks circling the area. At the beginning of the video you can see that the beach is only a few feet away and you can see the shark is actually feeding, taking a gulp at a couple fish.
Although it is not a common occurrence for sharks to roam this close to the beaches of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, they do come close at times, much like in this video. The beach in front of Amigos del Mar is a very popular swimming spot, especially for children. We don’t want to cause a scare, but just warn residents to keep a look out before getting into the water. It’s an open sea.
