  • (dramatic music)

  • - [Mark] Welcome to Tiger Beach.

  • Located off the coast of West End Grand Bahama,

  • this location is not a beach at all,

  • but rather, a world famous destination for shark diving.

  • More specifically, tiger shark diving.

  • It also happened to be the location

  • of our very fist shark dive ever.

  • If we wanted to kick off Blue Wilderness in a big way,

  • let's just say, this location did not disappoint.

  • From the powdery white sand basin,

  • we encountered four different species of sharks.

  • There were reef sharks, nurse sharks,

  • the snaggle tooth lemon sharks,

  • and of course, the mighty and magnificent tiger sharks.

  • (dramatic music)

  • Being in their presence was exhilarating.

  • The recipe of danger, tranquility,

  • mixed with a dash of adrenaline,

  • resulted in a truly life changing experience.

  • Everyone on our team went into this dive

  • with a high level of uncertainty,

  • and admittedly, a healthy dose of fear.

  • But, we all survived and came out with a bond

  • that all shark conservationists share.

  • Sharks are truly incredible creatures.

  • However, there was one character missing

  • from the cast of sharks at Tiger Beach,

  • one we'd hoped to see, but had seemingly alluded us.

  • In fact, this shark was held in such high regard

  • for its rarity and greatness,

  • the crew of the boat would only

  • acknowledge its name by way of whisper.

  • Hammerhead.

  • But as we finished our final dives at Tiger Beach,

  • and prepared to make way for port, it became clear

  • the great hammerhead encounter was not to be.

  • Or so we all thought.

  • Luckily, with a few moments left before pulling anchor,

  • I decided to fly our drone.

  • Wow, look at all those sharks.

  • Hold on a second.

  • Hey Mario, is that what I think it is?

  • You gotta see this.

  • Come check this out.

  • That's a hammerhead.

  • That's for sure a hammerhead we're looking at.

  • Mario, go tell the captain we need another dive.

  • The entire boat lit up with excitement

  • as we all raced to reassemble our dive gear.

  • This was it!

  • This was the moment we'd been waiting for.

  • It's a good thing fellow diver, Jonathan Bird,

  • came along with us.

  • His years of experience kept us all

  • locked in on the task at hand,

  • which was not only to get our cameras

  • in front of that hammerhead,

  • but was to put our safety always first.

  • Ahem, in shark infested waters.

  • Remember, there were still hordes

  • of sharks surrounding the boat,

  • but this dive was different.

  • This was not our first shark dive

  • and it was all about the hammerhead.

  • - One thing that's really cool

  • about scuba diving guys is like,

  • every time you're about to go in,

  • you kind of get butterflies.

  • You kind of get tingly and excited,

  • and you can't wait to get in.

  • Let's do this. - Let's go--

  • - You ready? - Go for it.

  • - All right.

  • - [Mark] Without hesitation,

  • we all jump back into the water.

  • First Jonathan, then Mario, and then, yep, there I am.

  • Once again, we drifted through

  • countless lemon sharks and made our way

  • back to the white sands of Tiger Beach.

  • At this point, the tiger sharks that

  • greeted us upon landing almost seem like old friends.

  • Well, three hour old friends, that is.

  • But hey, once you do a barrel roll

  • to escape the path of a charging shark,

  • I think that definitely makes you friends for life.

  • But as strange as it may seem,

  • the circling tigers almost vanished.

  • Well, almost.

  • Still had to keep a watchful eye on them,

  • but the other sharks?

  • Well, they might as well have all been guppies.

  • Everyone in our crew wanted to see one thing,

  • and one thing only, the hammerhead.

  • Yet, it was nowhere to be seen.

  • I started to think, was that really

  • the shadow of a hammerhead?

  • Maybe my eyes were playing tricks on me.

  • Will I forever be known as the diver that cried hammerhead?

  • But then, it happened.

  • Suddenly, the sand grew dark,

  • almost like the long shadow of

  • a thunderstorm rolling in from some far off place.

  • We all looked up, and there,

  • the perfect silhouette of a great hammerhead shark.

  • It glided across the sun like

  • some kind of aquatic phoenix.

  • But then it turned and it dove straight for me!

  • I froze as it plummeted by.

  • Wow, that was close.

  • Man, the speed of that 15 foot shark was so incredible

  • that I decided right then and there,

  • I would be blinking a whole lot less

  • for the rest of the dive.

  • (eerie musical notes)

  • Of the nine species of identified hammerheads on Earth,

  • the great hammerhead is by far the largest.

  • Some individuals have been known

  • to exceed lengths of 20 feet,

  • and weigh well over 1,000 pounds.

  • Of course, more impressive than their sheer size

  • has got to be the shape of that head.

  • Just look at it.

  • Perfectly designed to increase

  • the surface area of their face

  • to fit more electrosensing ampullae of Lorenzini

  • that help them detect their prey.

  • This makes hammerheads quite formidable food detectives,

  • able to sense a stealthy sting ray hiding beneath the sand.

  • Just seeing this shark at Tiger Beach

  • was an absolute stroke of luck,

  • as great hammerheads are not common at this location.

  • But today was our lucky day.

  • Well, as long as we made it back to the boat, that is.

  • Now compared to the tigers,

  • this hammerhead was downright ornery.

  • Between the multiple dive bombs at our cameras

  • to knocking down our dive master Houston flat on his butt,

  • it had no shortage of tricks to keep us on our toes.

  • It was fast, vigorous, and you know,

  • I think its antics even had an effect on the tiger sharks.

  • Check that out.

  • Where was that in the last video?

  • Of all my expectations of coming on this trip,

  • seeing giant sharks do tricks was not one of them,

  • but hey, it sure was cool.

  • After around 60 minutes of putting on quite the show,

  • the hammerhead decided it was time to take its bow.

  • And with that, it headed back into

  • the unknown regions of the reef.

  • What a perfect ending to the perfect day.

  • - Woo! - Dude,

  • most cooperative hammerhead ever.

  • - Is this real life?

  • Did that just happen?

  • - Unbelievable.

  • - Woo, man, guys what an epic dive.

  • We actually did it.

  • We shot an entire video with a great hammerhead shark.

  • I'm Mark Vinz, be brave, stay wild.

  • We'll see you on the next dive.

  • In life, we are so rarely able to identify

  • the moments that truly reshape our existence,

  • and even more so while they're actually happening.

  • But the bond I formed with those sharks,

  • on this day, is unmistakable.

  • They have indeed changed me forever.

  • From here forth, I'm committed to

  • being a champion of their preservation,

  • a true believer on a mission to

  • educate others through the lens of my camera.

  • I mean, just look at them.

  • They are, in a word, extraordinary.

  • As for Tiger Beach, I'm not sure

  • when we'll return to the brilliant

  • white sands beneath the waves,

  • but I can say, soon won't be nearly soon enough.
