Sharks are powerful and single-minded in achieving their goals. If the shark in your dream is nonthreatening, it's a sign that you should set worthwhile goals and follow your dream. Sharks usually symbolize fears that are often hidden and just below the surface. Although you might pretend they're not there, eventually you'll have to deal with them. The presence of sharks in your dream is a reminder that you should act sooner rather than later. If you're sailing over shark-infested seas, you're managing to deal successfully with a difficult situation and will come out of it with your reputation intact.
