WATCH: Maltese come face to face with a shark while on holiday in Australia
Sharks, particularly ‘great white sharks’, are a scary thought for many people who go swimming in the sea, and probably no one wants to come face to face with one of them.
This, however, was not the reaction of a group of Maltese people who were in Australia on holiday. Among their several unusual adventures, they decided to go diving to see sharks up close.
Their wish came true as a great white shark not only came close to them, but hit their cage, as if it wanted to get to them.
However in comments they gave to TVM, this group of Maltese tourists emphasised that sharks are animals which need protection and are not the monsters people often think they are.
“We went on a four-day expedition where in the evening we had lectures on the lives of sharks and their conservation,” explained one of the people in this group. “That iis why we decided to take a trip to the south of Australia, because it is unique in the world since you can go down in a cage to the ocean floor and see sharks swimming over you as well.”
See here the footage of this unique experience which these Maltese people will surely never forget.
