Mako Sharks are another one of California’s main sharks and the coast of Southern California is one of the best places to see them in the world. Mako’s are the top predator in the open ocean and demand respect. They are the fastest of all sharks and are capable of extreme bursts of speed making them superior hunters. Seeing a Mako in the wild is one of the best encounters you can have in the open ocean.
