Calm Diver Remains Motionless Amid School of Nurse Sharks

A diver off the coast of the Maldives remained calm as they floated motionless near the surface of the water while a school of nurse sharks swam around them, footage shared to Instagram shows.

This footage was captured by Rizkhan Mohamed of Shadow Palm Tours in the Maldives and posted to the company’s Instagram page on July 16.

Nurse sharks are, according to National Geographic, “slow-moving bottom-dwellers” that are, “for the most part, harmless to humans”

The company often shares both underwater as well as drone footage shot off the coast of the popular archipelagic state with its social media followers. Credit: shadowpalmmaldives via Storyful
