3. Hammerhead Sharks
Hammerhead Sharks are the most distinctive and unique sharks that you will see. Their name comes from the shape of their head- much like a hammer with wide-spaced eyes on either side of the head that gives it a cute and almost dopey look. Don’t be fooled by the cuteness though, as they are predators. They are also an extremely shy species of sharks that often hide from humans, and should only be viewed with the guidance and supervision of your dive master.
These strangely-shaped sharks can be found in waters surrounding Fuvahmulah between November and April. Fuvahmulah mostly plays host to the smaller variant, Scalloped Hammerheads, with females growing up to only 3.3 metres.
