Another shot from an epic encounter with a whale shark on tour with @ningalooreefdive. This shark swam around the back of our boat for over half an hour and at times almost had its head out of the water.
🚨 Warning 🚨 shark sighting in Charlotte! Please be advised there is a severe danger of puppy kisses and cold noses. 🚨
Data aka puppy shark is being fostered through the @charlottespca and will be available for adoption October 1st!! #isithalloweenyet#sharksighting#cuddleshark
A Huge thank you to @nanacnese for creating this incredible piece for Amy and Scarlet as a thank you for being such epic mermaids in my short film - The Sea & Me - The Oceans Keepers.
Check out my film on my website in my bio, or a short version down in my gallery.
The #ocean is epic, and these chicks are too! #shark#whaleshark#watercolor#watercolorpainting#watercolour#oceanart
Truly incredible!! Footage from the wild of a free swim mining giant megamouth shark. Perhaps one of the rarest sharks. This is the first video of a free swimming megamouth that exists never to be first captured accidentally in fishing gear and released. This happened yesterday on an otherwise normal dive in Indonesia
Amazing images and words from @samataluxury
Yesterday, our guest Penny Bielich was lucky enough to capture this footage of one of the rarest animals in the world! The Megamouth Shark, with only 63 sightings in history, was captured at 'Shotgun' dive site in Komodo National Park!! Just another reason to voyage with Samaya and discover the most unbelievable under water world 🦈 #megamouth#sharkweek#amazing#shark#PADI#incredible#epic#love#follow#sharks#oceans#Greatwhiteshark#nature#nofilter#videooftheday#videos#beach
This is a very large and very in charge Galapagos shark we encountered off Cocos Island, Costa Rica. She is the largest I have seen at 10-11ft and had an intimidating predatory prowess you could feel in the water as soon as she came in. All the other sharks immediately gave her a wide berth as she coasted through the water with unmistakable dominance. She honestly made me more nervous than a tiger shark twice her size would. I really don't know how to explain it; working with a variety of predators my entire life I never doubt that any of them could kill me if I made a mistake, but every once in awhile you encounter an animal that makes eye contact and lights up that primitive survival part of your brain. There are lots of predators out there, but every so often you encounter one of the alphas. She came right up to me and gave me solid look as you can see in the photo and almost imperceptibly turned her head ever so slightly to an angle she could make a grab if she wanted to, but thankfully decided not to...For me that means love at first sight, what an incredible creature to share the water with and an unforgettable experience. That description was also similar to my dating preferences! But in all seriousness she was not aggressive in any way, but moved with a predatory confidence that all the animals were observing. I truly love encounters like this and was lucky enough to have two on this trip(the other was with a very large tiger shark).
Diving Cocos Island National Park was an absolute dream, I can see why it deserves the status of being a UNESCO World Heritage site! I was there filming as an underwater cameraman for NatGeoWild's show Untamed with my buddy Filipe Deandrade onboard the SeaHunter. I took this photo with a Canon EOS-1D X Mark II while in my HECS aquatic wetsuit.
