Video: Hundreds of Hammerhead Sharks Swimming

Berkley White – Cocos – One Dive, Two Hundred Hammerhead Sharks from Backscatter on Vimeo.

A spectacular video from Backscatter features up to 200 hammerhead sharks swimming together. Incredible.

From Backscatter:

“We were ending another epic dive at the world famous pinnacle known as Alcyone. The current was next to nothing yet the hammerheads were boiling up out of the deep. At the end of the dive we came up as a group and drifted off the buoy line. In the distance we saw a large dark cloud that I assumed was a giant school of jacks. It turned out to be well over 200 hammerhead sharks. As I drifted into this mega school I could see the sharks twitch when they saw me. I thought it was over when the school split into two groups, but then both groups circled back in a giant figure eight pattern to make eye contact over and over again. I was so excited I’m not sure how how I kept the camera steady. It was truly one of the best dives of my life.”
