Info from Licensor: "I was freediving/spearfishing with my friends in Jupiter, Florida. We were about 3 miles offshore over an artificial reef. That's when my friend, Kristi, lifted her head out of the water and said, 'Is anyone else seeing this?' We looked down and knew right away it was a great white shark. At the time I only had my GoPro on my head so I dove down to get a closer video. When I got back to the surface, we lost sight of the shark and assumed it had left. We then decided to reset and drift over the reef again, not expecting the shark to be there anymore. After a couple of minutes we saw the shark again. That is when I asked my wife, Amber, to get my camera. She jumped in with my underwater camera and I was able to go down and get better photos of the shark. We estimated the shark to be 10-13ft long. It was later identified by a shark research team out of Massachusetts that tagged this shark back in 2012 and 2014. The shark's name is Salty."
