suggest you check out the threat Shark attack - where luke is updating on the situation in the area , but it appears the shark who was guilty has been caught ( not saying anything about that ;-( )

so suggest things will be back to normal soon if they are not yet

Well this morning I have done a mini tour around Port Ghalib and after asking a few hotel workers and boat owners in the Marina that authorities have not said anything about a ban on swimming or snorkelling. I have been around Marina Lodge opposite side of Port then back round to the other side Sunrise Marina, Siva and the Palace on the beach and there are many people in the water. I can not say if the ban is ignored but there are lifeguards in position with policemen but no one is stopping people going in the water as of this morning. I was doing some business at Coraya Bay and Jaz village and Resta Reef resorts yesterday and plenty of people in the waters there also. There is a 10 minute Drive between port and Coraya yes but still in same area.
