How Fast does a Shark Swim?

0 Comments November 13

How fast can a shark swim?The other day I was out surfing…well…I mean I was thinking about surfing and wondered how fast can a shark swim? Truth be told I knew it was much faster than the average wave carrying a surfer but still an interesting question non the less.

The question of how fast does a shark swim depends on which type of shark, also speeds vary if they are going with or against the current. In general a large shark swims at around 1.5 miles per hour when cruising around. To date, the short-finned Mako is fastest recorded shark with a speed of 30mph. There are unconfirmed reports of other sharks reaching speeds of 60-70mph for short bursts.

I “Hate” Dr Oz

This is a site for men, or more to the point, this is a site for men in relationships. Husbands, boyfriends and men that have to deal with the daily grind of life, and are then subject to the ensnaring power of Doctor Oz over our better half, the women in our lives.

Don’t get us wrong, we actually think Dr Oz is a great doctor, and we don’t hate him...specifically ☺
