This photo was taken on a snorkel trip out a few miles off the coast of Oahu. I had seen an add for swimming with sharks and couldn’t pass the opportunity up. They took us on a boat out to spot in the ocean where the sharks gathered and we just jumped in no cage or anything! There were at least 40+ sharks by the guides estimate. It was one of the most surreal and coolest experiences of my life to share the open ocean with these creatures! I happened to snap this photo with my GoPro.
