The ocean is still mysterious place, but one thing we know: The Great White shark is a fearsome predator. Why would someone willingly jump into the water with one, as we see freediver Ocean Ramsey do in the video below?
“While swimming with sharks is certainly a thrilling experience, my attraction to purposely come face to face with sharks such as Great Whites, Tigers and others is for a different reason – advocating shark conservation,” she wrote in a blog post at waterinspired.com. “Sharks are intelligent, calculated and generally very cautious about approaching humans. More importantly, sharks play a vital role in maintaining a healthy ocean ecosystem.”
The underwater video was shot with a Go Pro HD HERO2 camera. The company posted the video on YouTube with this caption:
