Meet the woman dispelling the myths about one of the world's most feared ocean predators by swimming without protection with great white sharks. Ocean Ramsey travels the globe swimming with many species of sharks hoping to prove they are nothing like their "Jaws" film reputation.

In these incredible photographs, friend Juan Oliphant caught on camera the moment a massive 17-foot great white let Ocean 'tail ride' through the deep. Shark conservationist Ocean, who is also a scuba instructor, model and freediver, swam with the massive fish in waters off Baja, Mexico last year.

The encounter with the biggest species of shark on earth meant the 27-year-old has swum with 32 different species in total so far. Ocean admits there will be fatalities sometimes when humans come into contact with sharks but often when the predators mistake them for prey.
