Nurse sharks may look fierce, with their big dorsal fins, catfish shape, and up to seven-foot-long bodies, but these predators aren’t interested in humans for dinner. Instead, they’re actually quite friendly, allowing swimmers to pet and touch them, you’ll even find them floating up on the deck of Compass Cay Marina, hoping for a nice rub.
