I had the greatest opportunity to swim with sharks during shark week, and it was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life. If you come to Hawaii, I highly recommend One Ocean Diving. They are highly trained and educated about the behaviors, characteristics, and importance of these misunderstood creatures.
I will admit I didn’t know much about sharks. Whenever I hear about them it’s not always a pleasant story, but what I’ve come to learn about them through One Ocean has given me a newfound respect for them.
Here are a just a few things I learned about them through One Ocean Diving:
They are essential to protecting the reefs by keeping the natural order of the food chain.
Young sharks haven’t quite figured out what they’re supposed to eat and what they’re supposed to leave alone.
They see very well, and they pick up on vibrations in the water. They can even pick up on electric fields like our heartbeats.
