Great White Sharks – The End of a Myth

Somewhere in the Eastern Pacific Ocean – November 2009

The end of a myth, no less.

This is what Fred Buyle, Pierre Frolla and William Winram were aiming for when they decided to embark on probably the most adventurous trip of all: to freedive with great white sharks.

In this particular case, freediving took the full extent of its meaning: no scuba, no cage.

This endeavour was part of the filming of a documentary series realized for Ocean Quest.

After reviewing the footage filmed during the expedition, the Ocean Encounters team is hopeful that these images will impact the world to change its perception of the great white sharks. Commonly thought as the most voracious man-eating creatures of the seas, these creatures are IN FACT shy and fragile.
