This is quite the shark tale.

An eye-opening video showing multiple grey nurse sharks swimming off the Australian coast near people who seem to be blissfully unaware that the creatures are below them was shared on Facebook by the Drone Shark App.

The overhead clip, which was posted Saturday, sees the sharks surrounding a massive school of salmon near Bondi Beach as the humans swim above.

At one point in the minute-long video, one of the people is even seen swimming in the middle of the salmon.

“We need to learn to coexist with these sharks as they are a regular visitor to #bondibeach,” the Drone Shark App’s Facebook post reads. “Especially certain times of the year as they can be around for days and weeks at a time."

The post urged people to stay clear of salmon schools if they are afraid of sharks.

“If we chose to sound the alarm each time, no one would be in the water at certain periods of the year,” the post continued. “I get a lot of people saying grey nurse sharks are harmless and yes I tend to agree BUT! there has been a few minor incidents in the past relating to these sharks.”

The Drone Shark App, which has more than 57,000 followers on Facebook, says on its page that it provides real-time drone footage “for all ocean lovers.”
