Yet even that is an illusory safety since many shark attacks happen in fresh-water inlets to salt water.

The rivers/streams which feed into the ocean can be navigated by sharks upstream a good distance - short periods of exposure to fresh water does not harm or bother sharks much. They learn by experience that animals sometimes wade into the water and may be eaten.

Most shark attacks happen in very shallow water.

So you'll want to stay a good distance inland and uphill to be really safe from shark attacks in water near the beaches.
