One of our favorite sharks to interact with is the Smooth Hammerhead. They are the second biggest of the hammerhead sharks, but are usually quite shy and rarely come in to interact with us. Normally they will come in for a quick look and then be on their way. They scare easily and don’t usually like to share with other sharks. But today was different. Today just minutes after we started a chum and four-meter hammerhead came in for some action. As soon as she arrived we quickly slipped into the water. She was curious, coming in very close and stuck around for almost an hour, slipping away into the blue once in a while. It was truly incredible to around such a large and gracious shark.
