DIVE WITH SALMON SHARKS!

 

Big Fish 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.

The lodge 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.

Scuba Dive on Pristine Alaskan Reefs!

To make this trip very special, I have chartered a dive vessel that will meet us in Valdez, Alaska and bring us to the remote lodge. After chasing salmon sharks each day, we will be able to don tanks and explore Alaska's pristine waters for other marine life. Expect beautiful sponges and corals and perhaps some of the Pacific Northwest's iconic species such as Giant Pacific Octopuses, Steller Sea Lions and Wolf Eels.

Want Even More?!!!

The days during the Alaskan summer are as long as you want them to be because this far north the sun barely sets at all. So, if you have any energy left after chasing sharks and diving, we can also snorkel in some of the nearby river mouths for pink and other species of salmon.

After traveling right across the Pacific Ocean while they grow from tiny salmon smolts into enormous hook-jawed adults, the salmon return to the very inlet in which they were spawned many year's before. Witness the end of their epic journey as they dodge sharks and bears and swim upstream to sire the next generation.
