For divers, encounters with sunfish are a rare and exciting event. Sunfish live their lives deep in the heart of the ocean, rarely swimming in places where divers go. They’re also enormous, which makes a chance encounter with a sunfish all the more magnificent. This massive sunfish was found by a group of lucky divers off the coast of Portugal, and footage of the event was captured by Miguel Pereira. Because of their size and general docility, sunfish move slowly and gently enough for divers to get more than a glance. See the incredible footage below.
