(WPEC) – Now here's something you don't see every day.

While diving with a local dive shop on Oct. 25, Alex Fogg, a Coastal Resource Manager for Destin-Fort Worth Beach, spotted something he'd never expect

"I was doing my reef monitoring work and looked up to see a large Manta swimming by. Took a little bit of video and went back to monitoring," Fogg said. "I looked back up and see the larger of two whale sharks swimming by."?

Fogg said he dropped everything and began filming. He said after 10 minutes, the manta ray came back and he got footage of the two creatures swimming together.

"It just goes to show you, you never know what you will see while diving!"
