A Start To Fall
Fall is always a season Hawaii shark divers look forward to, as for the end of summer and beginning of fall marks the start of the female Tiger Shark migration from the north western Hawaii Island to the main Hawaii Island. Female Tiger Sharks leave the North western Hawaiian Islands large, pregnant and beautiful.
They are believed to travel to the main Hawaiian Island to give birth in a more suitable nursery site. Although encounters are still rare, even in the fall, the chance are still increased which excites the whole crew. On September 2nd the crew and customers received a greeting to be remembered for a lifetime; out of the blue appeared a 16ft. pregnant female Tiger Shark.
She maintained her presence at the the dive site for the majority of the tour, making passes and observing the local environment. As the tour was coming to an end, just as she came, she left disappearing into the open blue waters surrounding Oahu. The boat ride back to shore was all smiles and good times amongst the crew and customers. (Before each tour customers are briefed on proper water behavior from one of our professional shark divers who will guide them throughout the tour).
