BLACK AND BLUE
Blue sharks are very inquisitive and interactive. This image was taken at night with the boat surrounded by over 20 of them. Their blue colour is only truly visible when contrasted with the black backdrop of the deep.

TRUE BLUE
Diving with the blue sharks has been on my bucket list for a long time. These sharks are, in my opinion, the most beautiful fish in the sea. They are extremely interactive and will bump, nibble and brush by you – allowing you to get in closer!

VERY SILKY SHARKS 
Juvenile silky sharks are so called because they have a reflective sheen on their skin that fades as the shark matures.

FACE TO FACE
This large, female great white has an attitude unlike any other shark we have encountered on our visits to Guadalupe. She is over 5m long and knows that she is the boss. She stayed with us for the whole day and never shied away from getting up close and personal.

DAPPLED MENACE
A pelagic blacktip shark cruises just below the surface, where some really special interactions happen. Here light, motion and atmosphere all combine to create amazing memories and shooting options.

CURIOUS SHARKS
To get closer encounters when silky sharks are present, try splashing with your hands at the surface. Their natural curiosity will often draw the sharks towards you.
