Deep Blue Shows Up In Oahu And The Internet Breaks…Completely

Deep Blue Guadalupe’s BIGGEST Great White Shark!

“Deep Blue” was initially spotted in 2013 at Guadalupe Island and named by the shark crews from the MV Horizon while filming with Shark Week. This week she was spotted feeding on a sperm whale carcass 20 miles off Oahu’s south shore and the images and videos have broken the Internet. The sighting of Deep Blue off Oahu was remarkable because the handful of previous sightings were documented 2,600 miles away at Guadalupe Island off Mexico’s Baja California peninsula.

It’s likely that Deep Blue became so big simply because of her age, estimated at 60+ years old she’s a strikingly massive great white shark, one of the largest ever documented.
