GW Encounters

Due to an increase in diver encounters with great white sharks we are initiating this page as of September 1, 2016. Alarmingly, there were 3 diver encounters with great whites in the same small area in the summer of 2016, so divers beware. Scientists do say that the numbers of great whites is increasing. We will present the encounters with the most recent one first and include the bite that happened 30 years ago.
