The shark, nearly 20ft (6m) long and weighing an estimated 2.5 tonnes, is believed to be one tagged by researchers about 20 years ago called Deep Blue.

It was attracted to the area off Oahu's south shore by the carcass of a dead sperm whale.

That’s cool.
Wonder where she was tagged?
I saw some other pics where she was off of the Mexican coast
Wonder where she’s travelled all those 50 years.

Her belly looks full. So she's not feeling like eating anything at the moment.

That's just stupid......it might not be hungry at the moment, but it could get PO'd about having some idiot touching it or bothering it.

It is only the third ever sighting of Deep Blue, who was last spotted in Mexico in 2013, and is estimated to be around 20 ft long and weigh 2.5 tonnes.

Deep Blue is estimated to be up to 50 years old and is something of a celebrity in the world of shark enthusiasts - she even has her own Twitter account and featured in an episode of Shark Week.

However, researchers warn that establishing the shark's exact size is difficult, and highlight the fact that three very large females have been spotted in the area over consecutive days.

Michael Domeier and Nicole Nasby-Lucas from the Marine Conservation Science Institute led the research project that first documented Deep Blue in 1999.

The pair told the Telegraph that unique pigment patterns confirmed that the shark photographed this week was Deep Blue.

They added that Deep Blue, who may live until around the age of 70, is very likely pregnant at the moment and could give birth off the coast of Baja, Mexico or California in the spring.

I'm guessing no one argues with her when she wants an extra helping of seal.

i've been in the water paddling out baits for sharks and had them around the kayak. i'd feel better with that white than in the water with bulls.

Can't believe you'd Fat Shame the shark. And maybe it identifies as a male. Or a crappie. Does your insensitivity know no bounds, sir?!?!?

Snorkel chicks name is Ocean Ramsey, she is a biologist and says a few words about swimming with Deep Blue in this video. More video on her Instagram page.
