A great white shark in the waters of Hawaii was no match for a quiet, petite blonde diver who dared approach the deadly predator.
Stunning footage shows the moment Ocean Ramsey, a shark conservationist based out of Honolulu, swam up to the enormous aquatic animal to caress the creature and even grab hold of its fin to take a ride through the water.
An advocate for shark preservation, she released the footage on Valentine's Day as her expression of love for the creatures she fears are misunderstood and at risk of extinction.
She described her dance with the massive animal, saying how in the beginning she watched 'the shark acknowledge and observe me, while I peacefully and calmly allowed it to swim towards me, and then experiencing it accepting my touch, allowing me to dorsal and tail ride,' in her description of the experience.
