The sandbar shark inhabits coastal waters, favouring water that is 20 to 65 metres deep (3), but occasionally venturing as down to depths of up to 1,800 metres (6). Only occasionally can its large dorsal fin be seen protruding from the water's surface, as the sandbar shark prefers remaining near the bottom (2). It commonly occurs in harbours, lagoons, muddy and sandy bays, and river mouths, but never moves into freshwater. It tends to avoid sandy beaches, the surf zone, coral reefs and other rough-bottom habitats (2).
