His situation became increasing dire when he noticed a 6-to-8 foot shark aggressively circling him in the waters below. He captured the scene on a GoPro camera that he was using.
“He came real close to me one time and when I kicked, I kicked his pectoral fin,” Fales said.
While swimming in the ocean one hour later, he noticed a second shark approaching him.
Before Fales was exposed to any more danger, he was picked up by another boat and reunited with his worried family.
Fales wasn’t shaken by his close encounters.
"I’m hoping to be able to go diving this weekend," he added.
