for not allowing that once in a lifetime experience to pass him by without taking advantage of it! Great whites do not have a history of being dangerous when they are in clear, warm water as this encounter in Hawaii was. I think it was a good call to swim with that shark under those circumstances..I would have jumped in without hesitation.

i just don't believe that a sophisticated predator like the GW is going to charge a creature that he can so easily recognize as NOT being recognizable prey. The same encounter in 30ft vis would have been an entirely different story...

Now the diver has an incredible experience that will color his world from that day forward---definately worth the minimal risk..

My hats off to you!
