Swimming With Sharks In Samoa

Samoana Sharks Fautasi by Paul Chetirkin. The Samoana High School Sharks offer a rowing team for its student in Samoa.

At 1:15 into the video above, a Pacific blacktip shark is shown. “It was not part of the boat photo shoot and was caught inadvertently. The blacktip is rarely a threat to humans and is usually skittish. The shark was actually following the videographer and I as we swam around Fagatelle Bay. We turned around and caught him on video…had probably been following us since we got in the water,” recalled Bruckner Chase.
