It was like a scene out of a blockbuster. A pair of Australian adventurers were out at sea filming sea turtles when they were joined by something entirely unexpected. Yes, unbeknownst to the duo, they would encounter a truly extraordinary sight, and it was a phenomenon that few professional divers – much less normal folk – ever experience.
When Brad Nicholls and Emmy-Rose Curtis got their hands on some new high-tech filming equipment, they decided to head out to sea to test out the gear. However, they had no idea what was in store for them that day.
The pair set out to go to South Stradbroke Island, nearly two miles off the Gold Coast Seaway, on a boat belonging to a friend. Next, they found the perfect spot in which to begin their swim, taking the underwater GoPro cameras with them. But they were soon joined by something far bigger than they had been anticipating.
