National Geographic Explorer and wildlife filmmaker Malaika Vaz uncovered the beauty of Fuvahmulah as part of the #UncoverTheEpic campaign. The underwater video features spectacular scenes of marine life and the majestic tiger shark, shot using the Galaxy S21 Ultra. While tiger sharks prey on fish, they are however both gentle and curious around humans.

Using the incredible camera capabilities of Samsung’s flagship smartphone, Malaika Vaz captured the magnificent underwater scene in 8K and extracted high-resolution stills from the video. In addition to that, Samsung says this video offers insight into what it takes to swim with one of the ocean’s most efficient predators.
