Large, sleek and solitary, Detour is an aloof female Bull Shark frequenting the Shark Reef Marine Reserve. Detour’s imposing physique and quiet assertiveness make her an impressive female and a Shark Star.
Detour was name for having the posterior margin of her first dorsal fin curving in, then out, then back in, making a "detour". She is also unusually dark in color with a striking black-and white pattern on her underside.
Detour has been visiting SRMR since 2007, and is one of our older and bigger sharks with a possible age of approx. 25-30 years and a length of more than 2.5m.
Detour avoids all contact with divers and does not hand feed; instead, she belongs to our tribe of specialized aerialists and will actively assert dominance mid-water.
