Freediving with oceanics
red sea freediving champion Federico Mana enjoyed a unique
encounter off the local reefs of the Egyptian resort of sharm el sheikh
when training this August. The 4-year-old was training at the Tower
sinaidivers.com
dive site in the late afternoon when a 2m oceanic white tip shark
appeared.

swimming close to Mana, the oceanic white tip stayed for 20 minutes in
the water in depths of between m and 10m at the freediving descent

‘If you are able to become part of the sea I think that sharks will get

closer to you, as it is not scared you are not too nervous,’

he believes there is no reason to fear sharks and that feeding, touching
and using camera flashes around the animal are usually the reasons
why an oceanic white tip may show aggressive behaviour.
‘In the red sea I have dived with tiger, oceanic white tip and grey reef
sharks and never had a problem. That day, the oceanic came so close to
us.’
The Italian-born freediver recently broke the national record in the
constant weight with fins discipline by reaching a depth of 100m in
sharm el sheikh (see a full interview in Freediver Focus page 4).
