Although our team has yet to meet this incredible creature, we hope that someday in the future, she will grace us with her presence.
In 2013 Dr Mauricio Hoyos posted footage of Deep Blue online as she visited one of the operating boats cages. Her size was like no other. As she swam past the cage, one of the Divemasters pushed her away from the bars and in that moment her size of 20ft became evident! Unfazed, she continued to swim around the cages before disappearing into the deep. A once in a life time encounter for the divers at the time and little did she know how famous she was about to become….
The footage was not only a internet sensation but also mainstream media outlets across the world picked up on her story as the world became fascinated by this mega shark. The interesting thing about Deep Blue is that she has actually only been spotted in two years at Guadalupe. 2013 (when the footage was taken) and prior to this way back in 1999. This begs the question, how is it possible that such a huge animal has gone so undetected all these years? She could also be as old as 50 years of age, just adding to the mystic of these magnificent creatures.
