A few years ago I went to Boca Grande for a research project and watched the Tarpon/Greater Hammerhead dance that happens each year in that area. Some of the largest Hammerhead Sharks in the world are found right here in Florida, but I haven't heard much about diving with them.
A search of this forum gives mention of an accidental sighting or two, but is there anywhere or anyone who specifically dives to see them?
The little scalloped hammers are great, but I'd be very interested in seeing a big one.
I used to dive the rock pile off of Sandspur beach In Boca Grande just about every weekend for about 3 years. It's not right at the pass but close enough. I never saw a Hammerhead. That doesn't mean they weren't there. Viz wasn't always the greatest, but I never saw one.
