- Why choose?
The current state of video display on the web provides many challenges. If this website contains a YouTube video, we default to it since it is more likely to work in your choice of device/browser. That may not provide the experience you prefer, so we offer the option to choose your display: YouTube or HTML5. Please note the HTML5 video option may not work at all in some browsers/devices. If you cannot view the video you can download it from our video repository.
NOAA Divers conducting research earlier this month (June 2016) from the NOAA Ship Hi’ialakai in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands reported seeing Galapagos sharks (Carcharhinus galapagensis) on almost every dive. In this video by NOAA Reciprocity Diver Richard Pyle (Bishop Museum) we get a rare view of these beautiful sharks as they swim alone, in schools, check out the divers and their equipment, and even swim around the divers during a decompression stop.
