A rare, new video has surfaced (excuse the pun) of a group of divers swimming in the waters off Cape Point with sharks.

Two species of shark were present with the divers, Blue Sharks and Shortfin Mako Sharks. Both not as deadly as the Great White Shark, but they have been known to cause damage to humans in the past – and a handful of fatalities on rare occasions. Fortunately, nobody was harmed in the making of this video, which was filmed on June 8th, 2017.

Enjoy being under the sea for a few moments with these beautiful denizens of the deep.
