Photographer’s Notes
There is a group of Big Rocks off the Moloka’i north tip. We were diving at a depth of 70 feet when we were surprised by this guy. I’m 6 feet tall and this hammerhead shark was about 2 feet longer than that … an 8 footer. Wow!

He (or she) was curious about us divers … and curiosity is not a trait I admire in sharks, especially big ones. Ultimately we grew boring so the shark left us alone. We saw several other sharks on this dive, gray reef sharks, white tipped reef sharks, and a stray Galapagos shark.

For a diver, this was the dive of the century: Clear water; and great sea life.
