Some people go to aquariums to see sharks. Some are brave enough to watch them in their natural habitat from behind the bars of a protective cage. Others go the extra mile and forego all protection to open-water dive with the ocean's top predator

The humans who hitch rides on sharks

Sharks seem to be generally uninterested in humans and their cumbersome scuba gear. They would probably rather be searching for their next fishy meal than serving as a diver's de-facto water scooter. While riding sharks is not illegal, it can be dangerous to both the diver and shark and could also be disruptive to the shark's feeding habits and other natural activities. With that in mind, check out these photos of humans getting extra close to some annoyed-looking sharks.
