Take A Swim With One Of The Largest Great White Sharks Ever Recorded

This is some new footage from off the coast of Oahu, Hawaii of some divers swimming alongside Deep Blue, a 20-foot long, approximately 50-year old great white shark and one of the world’s largest known examples of the species. Divers say Deep Blue showed up to feed on a sperm whale carcass, and is currently believed to be pregnant.

One of the divers, Ocean Ramsey, told the Honolulu Star Advertiser that they had been filming tiger sharks feeding on the whale when the shark arrived.

“She was just this big beautiful gentle giant wanting to use our boat as a scratching post. We went out at sunrise, and she stayed with us pretty much throughout the day.”

Great whites are rarely seen around Hawaii as they prefer cooler seas.

Ms Ramsey said older, pregnant great white sharks were the safest to swim near but cautioned against swimming anywhere where sharks were feeding.
