Divers Swim With A Giant Sunfish



These divers ran into a super-rare giant sunfish off the coast of Portugal.

They only spent 15 minutes with giant Nemo. Photographer Miguel Pereira said in the video's description on YouTube, "A few days before, my camera was damaged when the underwater housing flooded. The bad luck was compensated when diving with a GoPro I saw the giant Sunfish almost at surface level and practically static. The Sunfish seemed not to be bothered by our presence at all and followed us for 15 minutes."



It just goes to show you never know what you'll find under the sea.
