JUNO BEACH, Fla., Jan. 13 (UPI) -- A Florida scuba diver captured video of a 14-foot great white shark circling he and his diving companions about 3 miles off the coast.

Corey Embree posted a video to Facebook showing he and fellow divers from Calypso Dive Charters swimming about 100 feet under the surface of the water about 3 miles off the coast of Juno Beach.

The video shows a great white shark, estimated to be 14 feet long and about 1,500 pounds, circling the group.

"It swam very slow, almost like a submarine," Embree told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Embree said the shark circled the divers about three or four times before swimming away.

"He's probably investigating us, I'd never seen one and he'd probably never seen a human," he said. "She was just as curious as I was."
