Sharks of the World

Sharks have fascinated Man since primitive tribes saw sinister shadows in the waters off the beach. During the past few decades, men left their boats and the land to enter the sea, coming face to face with the symbol of their fear.
Increasing knowledge allayed the fears and allowed us to experience one of the sea’s most perfectly-designed creatures. My first shark feed was in October of 1972, far out in Australia’s Coral Sea. We had no idea what to expect, but that thrilling dive led to me do hundreds of shark feeds all over the tropical world in the ensuing decades.

Here are a few of these amazingly-focused creatures as I found them. If they look as if they are moving quickly—they are…

Shark circling around!

For thirty years my live-aboard diving adventures have specialized in providing our clients encounters with sharks in the wild. Where indicated by (offers feeding), the vessel will put bait in the water to bring in sharks for filming and observation. Sharks listed first are seen on every (or almost every) cruise. Those listed as "occasional" have been seen but are not reliable.

Rainbows for YOU!
