Divers swim with the world’s largest great white shark off the coast of Hawaii.

While swimming off the coast of Hawaii, not far from Oahu’s coastline, a group of divers had a once-in-a-lifetime – and certainly unexpected – event. When the researchers came across a large beast, they were filming a swarm of tiger sharks feeding.

As part of a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration initiative, Ramsey Ocean and her crew went to research tiger sharks when they came face to face with Deep Blue, the world’s largest great white shark. Despite the fact that the female weighs over 2,200 pounds and is 20 feet long, the divers showed they have steel nerves by touching the massive shark.

Ramsey told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, “We saw a group of tiger sharks and then she came up and all the other [sharks] split.” “She was basically this gigantic, gorgeous, kind giant that wanted to scratch our boat.” We headed out at sunrise, and she accompanied us for the majority of the day.

Ramsay immediately identified the woman as Deep Blue, as it was not the first time she had seen the fabled creature. According to the divers, she was most likely pregnant this time. Deep Blue is the world’s largest great white shark, estimated to be over 50 years old. Regardless, she is the most gentle of the giants.

The diver described her as “perhaps the most gentle great white I’ve ever seen.” “She appears to be pregnant, as she is very broad.” Pregnant women, on the other hand, are the safest to be around because they’ve seen everything—including us.

Swimming with sharks is a fantastic experience for many people, including Ramsay and her team, but going too near to these creatures may be quite deadly. That’s why, unless you’re a really skilled diver, even Ramsay doesn’t encourage free-cage swimming with great white sharks.
