Hammerhead sharks

Hammerhead sharks

Fancy swimming amid a school of hammerhead sharks?

From November to May hundreds of sharks teem in the waters around Yonaguni Island. Attacks on humans by hammerhead sharks are almost unheard of - instead they prefer to hunt stingray, which they pin to the ocean floor with their huge rectangular heads. An amazing spectacle!
