Brock said he had never before seen anything like the whale shark in his more than 250 scuba diving excursions.

"This whale shark graced us with its presence for approximately 1 minute, in approximately 30 feet of water, surrounded by nearly 100 remora's and 20+ cobias," Brock wrote in the YouTube video's description.
