First shark observation cage dives [Canada]
Last updated: August 30, 2017 at 4:12 am
2000 – Jeffrey Gallant and Chris Harvey-Clark (GEERG), observed several blue sharks off the coast of Halifax, Nova Scotia. The cage was used as a precaution since the dives took place during a shark derby in heavily baited water that could have attracted other shark species, including the white shark. The shark dives off Halifax were part of a Discovery Channel documentary on the sharks of Canada called Sharks of the Great White North.
