“We noticed a couple of (tiger sharks) after which she got here up and all the opposite sharks cut up, and she or he began brushing up in opposition to the boat,” stated Ocean Ramsey, one of many divers, recounting the extraordinary encounter to the Honolulu Star Adviser.
“She was simply this large lovely mild large wanting to make use of our boat as a scratching put up,” added Ramsey, who swam with the shark all day and captured beautiful photos. “We went out at dawn, and she or he stayed with us just about all through the day.”
