DIVE WITH SALMON SHARKS!
Expeditions Salmon Shark Adventure:
Join me next summer in Prince William Sound, Alaska for a
once in a lifetime encounter with Alaska's most iconic shark
species: the mighty salmon shark! Nowhere else in the world
is it possible to get close to salmon sharks but during a
very short window in the Alaskan summer, these mini great
whites congregate in a couple of inlets in the sound to
feast on pink salmon that are waiting to go upriver to breed.
that we are staying at is so well positioned for this
encounter that the sharks can often be seen circling just
off the dock with their fins breaking the surface. Be one of
the first photographers to bring home images of one of the world's
last big predatory sharks.

never been done before but this area has traditionally been
a good place to fish for them so we have high hopes that it
will be successful. This is your chance to be one of the
first divers in the world to photograph a Pacific sleeper
shark - the only existing images of this species were taken
by deepwater submersibles. The image below is of this
shark's Atlantic cousin but it gives you an idea of size of

Ocean while they grow from tiny salmon smolts into enormous
hook-jawed adults, the salmon return to the very inlet in
