Great Whites will power toward the surface from the depths to launch ambush strikes on targets at or near the surface.
These strikes hit, quite literally, like a truck! One and a half tons travelling at 30 km/h, what power!
Thursday September 12th, 2019 was a day to remember here in Monterey Bay, CA. During our all day trip, we were watching several groups of Blue Whales surface outside of Carmel bay when suddenly a group of three Killer Whales came flying into the area at a speed of about 10 knots. The Blue Whales fled, and simultaneously a group of about 100 Pacific White-sided dolphins came into the area and began bow-riding the boat! The dolphins soon discovered that the Orcas were in town, and the dolphins turned southwest and also fled the area. We stayed with the three Killer Whales all the way down south to the Bixby Bridge, where we found even more Blue Whales! Book your tickets for all day trips now: enjoy extra time spent with wild and free animals.

Getting a shot of a Great White breaching is hard enough, but getting an overhead view is a whole lot harder!
The way the water spray frames the shark as it hurtles out of the depths captures the power these magnificent animals generate in these strikes, no-one would want to get hit by that!

IT’S NOT TOO LATE - A quarter of all shark species are at risk of extinction, 100 million or more sharks are removed from the oceans every year and many of the largest species have seen their populations decline by 90 percent or more.
While there is still much to be learned about sharks and their importance to a marine ecosystem, what we do know indicates that losing sharks could be devastating for the oceans and people. As keystone species, studies have shown sharks play important roles in both the middle and top of the food web likely influencing the health of coral reefs.
Thankfully, the world is starting to wake-up to the crisis facing sharks. At the upcoming Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (), the only international treaty with binding provisions upon member nations to protect threatened and endangered species from unsustainable trade in their body parts, a record-breaking number of countries have offered their support to protect 18 species of sharks and rays (mako sharks, wedgefish and giant guitarfish) that are quickly disappearing from the world’s oceans. Will the nations of the world hear the overwhelming evidence that Makos need protection and take a stand for them, or will pressure from powerful fisheries lobbyists and commercial greed let makos slide quietly toward extinction? It is time we join together and END THE WAR ON SHARKS.🦈💙🦈 Please follow me: -@shark_megalodon_
