COME DIVING WITH MAKOS,
BLUE SHARKS & DOGFISH!
A New England Shark
Safari like no other:
Join me for two days chumming for blue sharks and shortfin
mako sharks off the coast of Rhode Island. Our hosts will be
award-winning Film Maker Joe Romeiro and Brian Raymond who
have an excellent record of attracting sharks.
will spend our third day on one of Rhode Island's offshore
wrecks where we will chum for spiny dogfish and dusky
smoothhound sharks. This has never been attempted before but
local spear-fishermen report being mobbed by dogfish as soon
as they catch a fish, so our chumming efforts should have
captivate everyone that dives with them. Their iridescent
cobalt blue flanks glow in the sunlight as they swim
gracefully towards you. Curious and bold but rarely
aggressive, they make fantastic snorkeling companions and
even better photography subjects.
are well known as the fastest shark in sea. Aggressive
hunters, makos are all business; they come in lightening
fast, hit the bait hard and then quickly disappear unless
you have master shark wranglers like Joe and Brian onboard!
and Dusky Smoothhounds.
Spinies are one of the feistiest little sharks you'll ever
encounter. What they lack in stature, they make up for in
shear numbers. Historically they would swim in plague-sized
schools from one bay to the next consuming everything small
enough to eat. Now depleted by over-fishing in many areas,
New England may be the last stronghold for this species.
Smoothhounds are illusive little sharks that are rarely seen
by divers. Further south they live at depths unreachable on
scuba but in Rhode Island they are known to mix in with
schooling spiny dogfishes so we'll be keeping a lookout for
them during our day of chumming on the wrecks.
Join us for a long weekend of epic shark encounters!
