Divers swim with one of biggest great white sharks off Hawaii

A team of divers has had a close encounter with one of the biggest great white sharks on record - and lived to tell the tale.

Some of the divers came so close to the female shark in the waters off Hawaii that they were able to touch it.

The shark, nearly 20ft (6m) long and weighing an estimated 2.5 tonnes, is believed to be one tagged by researchers about 20 years ago called Deep Blue.

It was attracted to the area off Oahu's south shore by the carcass of a dead sperm whale.

One of the divers, Ocean Ramsey, told the Honolulu Star Advertiser that they had been filming tiger sharks feeding on the whale when the shark arrived.

"We saw a few tigers and then she came up and all the other sharks split, and she started brushing up against the boat," she said.

"She was just this big beautiful gentle giant wanting to use our boat as a scratching post. We went out at sunrise, and she stayed with us pretty much throughout the day."

Ms Ramsey said the shark was "shockingly wide" and could be pregnant. Deep Blue is believed to be about 50 years old and has its own Twitter account.

Great whites are rarely seen around Hawaii as they prefer cooler seas.

Ms Ramsey said older, pregnant great white sharks were the safest to swim near but cautioned against swimming anywhere where sharks were feeding.

She said sharks would only attack humans if they were curious or if they mistook people for their normal prey, the Honolulu Star Advertiser reported.

That is sweet!

I would lick Ocean Ramsey's pussy til she told me to stop.

Apparently the shark felt that way too, amazing telepathy going on there that the shark was so peaceful...

The salt water seems to be treating her very well. I am sure she is full of electrolytes.

Id kick her like a milk cow.

This looks like another version of 'at one with the beast'. Assigning human motives and emotions to archaic animals. Did anyone see 'Grizzly Man' where he gave his Alaskan friends cute names, talked to them, even swam with the grizzlies? So heart warming, till that one time they ripped apart and devoured him and his girlfriend. I am sure it was just a misunderstanding between soul travelers. She's lucky she didn't meet the same fate. If she pursues such foolishness her luck will run out.
