Far off the coast of Cape Point in South Africa is where you find the heavily fished and rather threatened Blue and Mako sharks. The Mako shark is from the same family as the Great white and is considered the fifth fastest fish in the sea.

These sharks may look very intimidating, however are far from it when you see them underwater. The Blue shark’s extraordinarily long fins make them a preferred prey for fishermen, to cater for the high demand of the shark fin soup trade in Asia.

Divers from around the globe come to this location to meet these sharks eye to eye in very dangerous and wild conditions, far from the safety of dry land. One group made this amazing video while swimming with the amazing beasts.
