Tiger Sharks with Coyote Peterson! | JONATHAN BIRD’S BLUE WORLD


What happens when you put a shark and a coyote
together? Find out today on Jonathan Bird’s Blue World
with Coyote Peterson! Hey Everybody! I’m in the Bahamas today, going out to have
an epic adventure with Tiger sharks. Now, I know we have done that before. You’ve seen Tiger sharks before. But today is something special. You have been asking for an incredible collaboration
and today it’s going to happen. Everybody, I want you to meet Coyote Peterson
is coming with us on this trip. Hey Man, how are ya? I’m doing good, so this is the boat? This is the boat and we’re going to have
an epic Tiger shark trip. Now, I’m not going to get eaten, am I? Well, we’re going to try to keep you from
getting eaten. You know everybody’s been asking “Coyote,
are you going to get eaten by a shark?” but I’m going to do everything I can today
to NOT get bitten by a shark. Yeah, this is one of those animals that you
don’t want to encourage to bite. Right
Yeah, so we’ll do it. Permission to come aboard? Come on man! Sweet
Alright let’s do it Tiger sharks, here we come! Today I’m helping the Brave Wilderness team
film the first episodes of their new series Blue Wilderness. It will be hosted by Mark Vins, who has been
producing Brave Wilderness with Coyote since the beginning. Their whole team has recently learned to dive
and this is their first big dive trip. Since they are new to diving and underwater
filming, they came to me for some advice, and we decided to get together for a week-long
dive adventure on my favorite dive boat, the Dolphin Dream. We have a lot planned for the week. Our first stop: Tiger sharks. Our adventure begins in West End, Grand Bahama. We sail north across the Little Bahama Bank,
a shallow area of mixed sand and reefs. It will take several hours to reach our destination,
a large shallow area called White Sand Ridge. Along we way, we have some time to relax,
but it’s not long before we stop for a warm-up dive. Mario, the Brave Wilderness cameraman, just
got certified, and this will be his first dive since finishing his scuba class! Mark and Coyote have done a few dives, but
they haven’t been in the water in a while. See I have changed out my head attire from
cowboy hat to youth-sized beanie maybe? I don’t know, that’s what it feels like. You look like a seal! Arf, arf, arf! I usually find this one of the more difficult
aspects, getting the snorkel and the mask tuned perfectly to getting in the water. I’ll be sure that’s adjusted properly. Okay, that will do it. I’ll tell you what, if you thought you were
steamy before putting on the mask, just put on the mask, and it intensifies. Alright, time to get on my BCD. I hop in the water first, to get some shots
of Mark and Coyote jumping in. Coyote is going first, and I can tell he is
a little nervous. Scuba is still new for him. But he does a perfect giant stride entry like
a pro. Now it’s Mark’s turn. Mario has to film everything in his wetsuit,
then join us in the water. After Mark is in, Mario joins us, ready for
action! We drop down to the bottom and there isn’t
really very much to see, just some sand and a few soft corals. But that’s not the point. Coyote, Mark and Mario need to get confortable
in their scuba gear before we add sharks to the mix! Mark also has a brand new Gates housing to
figure out! And Coyote has camera envy. Soon everyone is ready and we head back to
the boat. So how was it? Tough for me. Every time. I’m like a fish out of water in the water. But it was good to take just a warm-up dive,
get acclimated to the environment. And now it’s time to move the ship and get
in with the sharks. We pull anchor and head to Tiger Beach, which
isn’t actually a beach at all. It’s the unofficial nickname for a shallow,
sandy place far from land where they chum for Tiger sharks. As soon as we arrive, the crew starts chumming
to begin the process of attracting sharks. Then Captain Gerard gives the group a dive
briefing. If you guys don’t follow our suggestions
for protocols and safe practice of diving, there is a very good probability that you
will get bit, and from that there is a very good probability that you will die. We’re about six hours from land and about
eight hours from actual medical care. And after that cheerful speech, I have to
reassure the Mark and Coyote that they’re going to be fine. This is going to be so much fun, you are going
to love this. Okay, I’m hearing fun. Is it safe? Well yeah, it’s pretty safe. Pretty safe? Mostly safe. Okay, mostly safe. So how do we stay safe? So, we’re going to wear gloves, which keep
your hands from looking like fish. And we’re going to wear hoods so we have
this sort of ninja look. It keeps the sharks from thinking of us as
having any food. Does that make the shark intimidated that
we’re like ninjas or is that for color? That is just to keep us from looking like
anything edible. And when we hit the water, we’re going to
go straight down so we don’t hang around the surface where prey would be, you know,
and we’re going to get down to the bottom. And once we’re down there, they think of
us as just something that lives in the ocean. Something competing with them for some food. So they’re going to ignore you. You’re going to love it. OK
It’s going to be fun. Well, I’m excited. Coyote, how do you feel? Are you ready? Got my giant camera rig ready, and I am 100%
certain we’re going to get in the water and get some epic shots! After an hour of chumming, the boat is surrounded
by sharks. So when we pulled up, we immediately had sharks,
which is always a really good sign, but there’s a Great Hammerhead down there and I’m really
hoping that it sticks around, because it is so rare to see a Great Hammerhead here. I’ll meet you on the bottom! See you down there buddy! Down on the bottom, there is a lot of action! Already we have three species of sharks: Caribbean
Reef sharks, Lemon sharks and at least one Nurse shark hanging around the chum box! Plus about a zillion fish. Within a couple of minutes, Coyote and Mark
are hitting the water, and things down below are in full swing! Then the first Tiger shark shows up! And I’m pretty sure she just sneezed. And soon, the Great Hammerhead appears! This isn’t just any Great Hammerhead. This is a friendly one that has been showing
up at Tiger Beach a lot for the past two years. And they call her “Patches” for her patchy
ventral coloration. Normally, Hammerheads do not show up at Tiger
Beach. Either they are afraid of the Tiger sharks,
or they are just too skittish around all the divers. But Patches is different. Patches is in fact so awesome, we’re going
to do an entire segment about her. The appearance of Patches and the Tiger sharks,
means that we now have 5 species of sharks present on a single dive, and I’m pretty
sure that Mario is super excited! I’m getting a kick out of watching Mark
get comfortable with his new underwater camera and I can tell he is in the zone where he
is focusing on shots and his fear is gone. It’s fun to be a part of it and to see these
guys falling in love with sharks right in front of my eyes. After an hour, we get a few last shots and
then reluctantly head back to the boat. Nobody wants to get out of the water but we
are low on air. I can hardly wait to hear what they thought
of the dive! But when I pop up, Mario has the camera ready
and he wants to know what I thought of the dive! Five species in one dive! I don’t know if that has ever happened! To me…I mean, that’s amazing! So Coyote, that was the luckiest first shark
dive in the history of diving! Why because I survived and wasn’t eaten
by the sharks? Five species of sharks, including a Great
Hammerhead on your first shark dive! I mean, I don’t know what is good shark
diving because I’ve never dove with sharks before! So for me, I mean, being on the surface and
my immediate thought was “oh cool the sharks are right at the surface, let’s get the
shots here!” And we get into the water, and there’s definitely
this moment when you walk to the edge of the boat—I’m always concerned with my mask
coming off, my regulator coming out of my mouth—and you kind of lose that moment when
you say “Okay, now I’m jumping into a pile of sharks.” And I remember hitting the water and being
like, as soon as I opened my eyes inside of my dive mask—everywhere. They were just all around youand I looked
straight down and I saw a huge Tiger shark. Now the Tiger sharks weren’t up on the surface
when we went into the water, so immediately I was thinking to myself, man this is going
to be epic! And once I got down there, found myself on
the bottom, found all of you guys, oriented myself, got comfortable with the environment
and said Okay, take a deep breath and start getting the shots. And man, I’m not sure I have ever filmed
anything more epic underwater than I have Tiger sharks and of course that Great Hammerhead. What a treat that shark was. Super cooperative, multiple passes right over
the camera. Dude, that is beginners luck for shark diving
if ever there was. I mean, I’ll take it! I certainly didn’t expect to see a Great
Hammerhead. The Tiger sharks are impressive, the Lemon
shark are impressive, the other shark species that we saw, but that Great Hammerhead is
so big and it’s got that gnarled front jaw and you can just see the teeth sticking out. And every time it would turn its head with
one of those big eyes staring at you, all I could think was okay, keep swimming, don’t
come towards me! I’m a friend not a foe, not food, just keep
going—and then you get the shot! It was epic, thank you for coming. Jonathan thank you so much for featuring me
on the channel today. I’m thrilled to be here and I’m glad that
my presence supposedly brought all these cool sharks in front of the cameras. It was certainly a day to remember. Well, we’re bringing you on all our shark
dives now. Sounds great! Next up, Great White Sharks? Yeah, sure thing? Out of the cage? Yeah! Alright, I’m ready! As the sun sets, we are already looking forward
to tomorrow, because things are about to get even more wild. Don’t go away! You don’t want to miss Coyote making friends
with a Tiger shark!! The next morning, the boat is swarming with
sharks. But we’re doing a shark feed, so we have
to jump in to this mass of sharks and swim down quickly to the bottom. We hit the water and head over to the sandy
area where the feed will take place. Coyote and I are first on the scene. Soon Houston arrives with the bait box. The sharks know the deal. They immediately come over and start circling,
waiting for the free breakfast to start. Mark arrives, with his camera ready. As Houston starts feeding, Mario, Mark and
Coyote are all keeping a safe distance, with Cameraman Tim filming from behind them. I’m keeping my camera trained on Coyote,
just in case something interesting happens! Interesting things always seem to happen to
Coyote! Meanwhile, Finch has taken over the feeding
with his traditional silly shark feeding outfit. As the feed goes on, more and more sharks
come to the party. Coyote and Mark get more comfortable, moving
closer and closer to the action. Then the sharks come around to investigate. Mark has a close encounter of the sharky kind. But he handles it calmly. No problem! Coyote is getting right up close with his
camera. And then Coyote has his own close encounter. And he recovers like a pro!! This was not an act of aggression from the
shark. It was just investigating Coyote to see if
he had any food. You don’t need to read sign language to
understand what he’s saying: that is one big Tiger shark! At the end of the dive, we all head back to
the boat to celebrate. We took the Brave Wilderness team shark diving,
and Coyote didn’t get bitten by anything! Mario and Mark got some valuable experience
filming underwater for their new series Blue Wilderness, and guess what? We are planning a bunch of upcoming collaborations
between Blue World, Blue Wilderness and Brave Wilderness. So stay tuned for more awesome underwater
action in the Blue World!! Hey Everyone, thanks for watching our latest

  1. Coyote Pederson is about to enter the chomp zone with the tiger shark ok 1…..2…..3!  "Ahhhhh!  He's bitten my arm off!"  Mark  "Man, are you alright?"

  2. Don't you hate it when you need to breathe through your mouth instead of your nose when you need to wear this diving equipment?

  3. That was totally awesome! I felt a little bit nervous for mr cayote but den he handled it smoothly… yeah! It was just a tiger sharks.. great job! Cant wait for ur nxt collaboration.. just keep in safe always..

  4. Everybody i the comments saying this is a better crossover than infinity war. No.

    But a crosover between blue world, brave wildereness AND antscanada however…

  5. 17:11 that shark was like "bruuhh, you don't have anything to eat man! I even open my mouth!"
    and, that silly shark feeding outfit was really… silly lol
    great job guys! hope to see more collab like this in the future! just perfect!!!

  6. Coyote Peterson – on land with animals

    Jonathon – Underwater with animals

    Me – on the bed relaxing with my fav animal showcase 😀

  7. Sorry for binge watching ur vids hehe.. everyone is so brave there. thanks for sharing your amazing videos. God bless u and ur family

  8. Johnathan you have given me inspiration to become a scuba diver since my freshman year of high school and it’s been an amazing journey. And now that I’m finally a senior in high school I was given the opportunity to become a scuba diver and I’ve now been certified. Thank you for giving me such great inspirations!

  9. 4:25 I now see why coyote has camera mans lol I love his vids also when my parents say my electronics dont teach meh anything this is what I say "ba boom "

  10. State the obvious!!! This is how I heard about you!!! Seatigy: is that Coyote Peterson??? Who gets bitten & stung by everybody??? Can I have a go??? Coyote: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Mark: RUOK??? Jonathan: It's FIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

  11. These sharks seem accustomed to constant divers and the interaction seems natural. How would the interaction be if per-say you run into a tiger or a lemon elsewhere in the world, away from a constant dive spot?

  12. Fascinating! I will visit there someday before I die. Jonathan is good at arousing a desire to dive into the diverse ocean.

  13. Props to the cameramen for that shot at 9:07! It looks so gorgeous, looks like you guys are flying with the shark 😍

  14. This is perhaps the best of the best scuba diving adventures I have seen so far. I been diving over 10 years, just three certifications, solo high elevation lake dives, Ocean dives off Catalins and Laguna beach but NO Shark dives so far. I would absolutely LOVE to dive with big sharks like these. WOW!!!

  15. 2:55 Coyote's seal imitation made me laugh so hard, I thought he was pretending to be Gomamon from Digimon Adventure.

  16. I've always been a fan of both, but when they collided, I was like "Oh my god, two animal experts colliding, amazing.

  17. Wow beautiful but scary 😱
    Enjoy and take care guys. As always I'm happy watching your Chanel 😘😍 huge thanks Jonathan!

  18. All of these fish from the largest to the smallest show up for only one reason….FOOD. They and there grandparents parents and their kids soon to follow, instinctively know boats mean humans, humans mean free meals…it is awesome and yet disgustingly sad at the same time for me. I am a shark lover, a diver that has been around the globe a few times and have mixed feelings about feeding and tagging also. Check out: www.facebook.com/mygrandpathediver, a FB page I created in honor of my grandfather, Ted Nixon, who in 1956 created the Diver Down flag and never mead a penny from it.

  19. I love your videos they are so fascinating to watch and you with of the fish and sharks and whales are so amazing. 😁😀😄😆😆😊🤗

  20. Man oh man! I am starting to realize the great driving force of pure envy! Get me in those waters! I wanna hug a shark. Are they sporty or what?! "Gimme some food already! Hey I'm gonna tip that basket over! Where is my food you crummy bastards!" Did u see that one who just gave an upwards stare? Like: "This one has no food. What a loser!!!"

  21. Thank you for providing those professional and beautiful videos … and for giving another perspective to these great animals!

  22. So awesome! I love this channel and I love the Brave Wilderness channel too. It’s crazy cause I was just watching one of your vids and started to think about how cool it would be to see a collaboration between the to of y’all and the next recommended was this one. Too cool!
