Hawaii diver says he escaped white shark

It would seem as more and more divers, kayakers, and thrill seekers find themselves in the waters off Yokohama Bay...more and more are encountering Great White Sharks.

This mornings news greeted us as another diver/speero claimed to have encountered a 14 foot critter who was moving up his chum line.

Since the beginning of May we have had 4 emails from divers claiming to have seen them but no images (this image is "Shredder" from our Isla Guadalupe site).

Rare events? We think not.

The latest long range tagging data from both Topps and elsewhere suggests a robust white shark migration to these islands each year.

Case in point.
