RE: shark attack in philippine waters?????

It depends which species lurk in the area, right? For example, if you're going by ship to Surigao/Siargao you would pass by a part in Maasin notorious for shark attacks (White ones not sure if there are but I'm 100% sure there's Tiger) but Cloud 9 Siargao is way too far & luckily enclosed and sprawled by long reefs (although it openly faces the Pacific) so the shark types you might see on the local market are the non-attacking ones like Thresher, Whale (nowadays never, last I saw in the area was 17 years ago), Hammerhead.  

What I'm saying is for sure Siargao, no, but the rest of the spots I can't be too sure.

Hmm but yeah in Siargao though more portuguese men of war float at times when westerly winds are blowing (June - October) and occasionally the rest of the year
