I love water and salt water is best for me. However,I am scared to go out in the middle of the ocean. it had been offered an no I will not go. I don't want to go by boat either. I just don't trust that a shark won't come when I least expect it.

I can't swim. But I have walked along the edge of the water line.

Maybe a lesson in a pool will help you. Swimming is fun.

@sharon6345 My aunt tried to teach me, but I can't get my body to float on the water.

I donĀ“t like to swim in open sea. Probably inside a protected bay, but not out of the protection area of the bay.

I would never go to swim in the ocean, it's far too dangerous.

I love being in the sea and I'm unmindful of the dangers there might be for me. My son takes after me and enjoys the deep ocean. We once went to an island and we had to traverse the open sea on a small boat. I am such a sea lover.

I will walk along the ocean but not swim in it. Sharks are coming to close to the shore to trust them.

That is the case with me over the years. I will not trust new York oceans as they are too dark to see under.

I never have. I have romped and played in it. I've picked up shells and listened to the ocean in some. I have even set in pools and felt the water wash over me when the tide came in. I would love to ride with the dolphins and sail in a sail boat. The water scares me and so I doubt I will ever swim in the ocean.

I haven't been near an ocean for years but I did enjoy it when I did. I love the feeling whileyou floating but then everyone warning you of sharks.

I am not afraid to go by boat. Shark is in a deep sea only here at my place and haven't seen one alive. I am only afraid of sea snake and sea urchins with long and sharp spine.

No, I'm scared of going too far into the ocean.
