A girl and her shark

We don’t ever see great whites at our island off the coast of Belize (great whites generally don’t like water as warm as we have) but sometimes we just can’t resist an awesome underwater video clip, and this one, featuring snorkel diver Ocean Ramsey, more than makes the mark.

Ocean, a Hawaiian shark conservation advocate, was featured in The Daily Telegraph after taking a risk few others in the world have dared – swimming in open water with several adult great whites. She told The Daily Telegraph yesterday the experience, which occurred off the coast of Mexico, was one of the highlights of her lifelong diving career. “The goal was to go and find some great white sharks and collect video footage of their natural behaviour, but also, if the opportunity arose and the conditions were right, to actually interact with them,” she told The Daily Telegraph two days ago after a video of her swimming in open water with several adult great whites went viral on Youtube.
