Video: Giant Great White Shark Frolics With Divers
01/18/2019 9:18pm

Divers off the coast of Oahus North Shore had the rare treat last week of swimming and frolicking with a great white shark, widely believed to be one of the largest in the world, and the thrilling, inter-species encounter was captured on video. Ocean Ramsey, who independently studies sharks and leads cage-free shark diving tours off the Hawaiian island, was in the water with her team, monitoring a group of tiger sharks feeding on a decomposing sperm whale on Tuesday, when she suddenly spotted Deep Blue, as the 20-foot-long female shark is called. I waited quietly, patiently, observing as she swam up to the dead sperm whale carcass and then slowly to me, Ramsey wrote on Instagram. As the whale came closer, Ramsey extended her arm out toward the massive shark to maintain a space so her girth could pass. Eventually, Ramseys gloved hand caressed the shark. What some dont realize is that sometimes sharks seek touch, she said. Ramsey urged the public not to try to engage with sharks
