Watch as this scuba diver gets up close and personal with a bunch of different types of surprisingly calm sharks.

Scuba diving instructor Andrew Lomakin, 24, has been diving professionally for four years and began capturing his adventures among marine life about a year ago.

These videos were filmed around Lady Elliot Island in Australia where he ran into a range of creatures from the leopard shark to the grey reef shark.

Andrew describes scuba diving as “relaxing” and typically spends an hour under the water.

He said: “No matter how rough or crazy things get on the surface, when I slip beneath the ocean surface and descend into the deep, I get a sense of calmness roll over me.”

“There are many places around the world that I would love to dive and one of them being Palau, which has some amazing marine life!”
