We were at 90ft close to the bottle field.

I just compared another video, from August 1st: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0a2TZc-btv8&feature=youtu.be
I'm pretty sure all three photos/videos depict 3 different sharks!

Great observation-- although you sent a chill down my spine. BillZ and I were doing some pretty fast helicopter turns, in effort to keep one shark in front of us. Little did we know there is at least one more lurking!

Great video

Sigh.... I think she hates me. Or else I stink. Or something....

Absolutely beautiful video... she is gorgeous.

We saw her Tuesday night around the bottle field. She swam under, around and between us for about 5 minutes until she started to get a bit too aggressive for comfort.

8/10 at Redondo.
A bit beyond the carousel boat. Was definitely the same shark Derek snapped photos of. Encounter only lasted a minute but I was close enough to touch it (I didn’t :) ).
