1. Effective up to 25 meters
  2. 10 times greater than humans in clear water
  3. Eyes very similar to humans – cornea , lens, retina, iris, pupil
  4. Contains rods and cones so can detect colour and see in low light – new research (2011) shows not all sharks have the same cones cells, bull sharks cannot see in colour.
  5. Tapetum lucidum – detects very small amounts of light which is why they can see in very murky water
  6. Can see out of the water as well – pupil dilation
  7. Iris is a vivid blue colour
  8. Nictitating membrane (eye lid) lacking in great whites so they roll their eye back for protection

A perfect day!

Then the dive was really secured and managed by a very friendly team , even the skipper was helping everyone he could! We stopped at sea and waited an hour – there were fruits, sandwiches, cool drinks, water, towels available to us. The wetsuits were clean and dry and when the sharks arrived, they made sure to tease it to the boat but not feed it, very professional.

Close encounter

I like the approach this outfit takes – education, conservation and letting the sharks come to the boat instead of chasing after them. We saw 3 sharks, 2 of which came right up to the boat.

Excellent experience, Excellent service!!

More than a year ago, I was unlucky, in that, on my trip, I did not see a single Shark! White Shark Projects kindly gave me a voucher for a return trip within a year from then.They extended this to allow me to have a truly memorable experience! This time I saw plenty of Sharks

The Pocket Shark

Recently, scientists identified a tiny male shark specimen that had been frozen in cold storage since 2010 and it turned out to be a rare catch! It’s only 14 cm long (5.5 inches) and one telltale feature gave it away. It has small slits (or pocket glands) above its pectoral fins, which produce bioluminous fluids....Read More
