(KTVI) – A man in Australia saw a bit more than he bargained for after strapping on a GoPro camera and jumping into the ocean in Australia.

After his jump from Manly Jump Rock in Sydney Harbour, the man’s friends began shouting at him from above. Dipping below the surface to investigate, he saw a great white shark appear. As he swam for the shore, the shark moved closer, swimming right by him before he made it to shore.

The full video can be seen below.
