Who’s Watching Who? Diver Gets an Intensely Close Mako Shark Pass-By [VIDEO]

A mako shark buzzes this diver while he tries to film a blue marlin.

Check out the surprise cameo on this underwater blue marlin film.

You won’t believe this diver’s reaction to that mako either.

 

Shark expert and underwater videographer Jim Abernathy was in the water filming a blue marlin being fought by an on-deck fisherman. Little did he know, somebody else was in on the action.

A mako shark can reach ten feet long and weigh up to one thousand pounds or more. They are amazingly fast swimmers and are known for their spectacular leaps when hooked.

Even a veteran diver can become a bit uneasy when one of these fantastic creatures swims by. Especially when he doesn’t know it’s there.
