BREVARD COUNTY • VERO BEACH, FLORIDA – That famous tagline from “Jaws” also fits a recent occurrence in Sebastian Inlet. It seems a photographer from Indian River by Air spotted a massive swarm of sharks Thursday just south of the inlet.
While the company that takes photos from a powered parachute was able to catch the impressive sight on camera, representatives say they’re not exactly sure what kind of sharks they managed to photograph.
What they are sure of is that there were a lot of them – a whole lot.
John Massung of Indian River by Air told NBC 6 South Florida that it’s typical to see sharks in the water in north central Florida but nothing like this.
“It looked like they had traveling in mind. They were heading north,” said Massung who helped shoot the photos.
Photographers from Indian River by Air posted three shots of their impressive sighting on their Facebook page, asking fans to chime in on what types of sharks were in the swarm.
Indian River By Air’s shots were taken just one day before a man was bitten by a shark in the Jupiter Inlet, about 80 miles south of the swarm siting.
