But diver Michael Early and his friends are used to amazing sights of the deep.
Luckily for Michael the sharks in question are docile Basking Sharks which live most on plankton and do not harm people.
The Burtonport man was diving off Arranmore Island with friend Patrick McElroy earlier today while Oscar Duffy did coxswain for the lads.
“It was an amazing sight. Patrick was filming and he lost count at 25 but estimated there were 30 or so of them,” said Michael.
We really don’t know what swim beneath the ocean a few hundred yards away.
