    Guys, could you please specify the species of shark? It makes a big difference.

      but goblin sharks aren’t as sensational! Put good money down that those were Tigers. They come close to shore in the summer months on the North Shore to fatten up on turtles and fish balls, then generally go pelagic after that. The funny thing about these shark warnings is that of those actually sighted, there 5 times more patrolling the immediate area that are never sighted. In over 45 years of surfing, I can only imagine how many large Tigers have come within feet of me and i didn’t even know it.

        True, (I’m a diver on O’ahu) I just don’t want to walk into a Tiger’s territory by accident.) (that said, I would love to swim with a Tiger but that’s probably not too bright.)

    In this age of modern technologies, I wonder why Drones are not fully utilized to be able to spot sharks in and around the shore lines of Hawaii. Why is it that we are still at eye sight only?

    I remember when I was just a kid growing up in Kaneohe, we would go out to the pier to fish for whatever we could catch and all too numerous we’d catch hammer head baby sharks. And I’m talking well over 50 years ago. So I’m thinking the K-Bay is alive and well with sharks still today, besides many other areas of Hawaii. They looking for food.
