Dr. Stephen Kajiura, a biological sciences professor at Florida Atlantic University, took the video during his weekly black tip shark migration surveys.

Kajiura, who has been featured on “Shark Week,” said that there were not many sharks south of Boynton Beach or in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.

He told WPEC that when his survey reached Palm Beach, "It was loaded—literally tens of thousands of sharks.”

"It's so cool," he said. "There are literally tens of thousands of sharks a stone's throw away from our shoreline. You could throw a pebble and literally strike a shark. They are that close."

He also said he saw large concentrations of sharks off the Jupiter Inlet.

Kajiura’s study of the sharks' migratory patterns will try to answer why the sharks are attracted to Palm Beach County waters.
