MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif., Jan. 29 (UPI) -- A U.S. tourism company says individuals wanting to catch a glimpse of a shark are best served visiting locales like Hawaii, Australia and South Africa.

VirtualTourist.com of Manhattan Beach, Calif., said Friday among the top spots to see sharks worldwide is the Hawaiian island of Molokini where shark enthusiasts can watch the maritime predators with little risk to their personal safety.

Second on the company's shark-sighting list is Fraser Island off the coast of Queensland, Australia. But tourists should stay out of the water.

Those tourists interested in seeing great white sharks should head to Shark Alley in Gansbaai, South Africa, VirtualTourist.com suggests. The deadly sharks are visible from boats or underwater shark cages in the narrow strip between two South African islands.

The Web site's final two suggestions for shark lovers are the Red Sea and New Smyrna, Fla. While the Red Sea's shark population is reported decreasing, New Smyrna has earned a reputation for a series of shark attacks.
