These 18 Underwater Moments Will Give You Serious Anxiety About The Ocean

SEPTEMBER 23, 2016  —  By Corinne Sanders

I've said it before and I'll say it again: The ocean completely freaks me out.

Sure, its diversity of life is astounding, but it can also be absolutely terrifying when you remember that some of those creatures see you as their next meal.

Not only are you completely out of your element in these waters, but it's impossible to see more than a few feet ahead of you when you start swimming too deep. That's why these underwater scenes are guaranteed to make you more than a little uncomfortable about spending time in the ocean.

1. It's what you can't see that makes this extremely unsettling.

2. You never want to get caught in one of these.

18. Could you imagine getting stuck in there?

Well, all my fears have just been confirmed about a million times over. At least I know exactly what to say if anyone tries to make me join them for a dip in the deep blue sea.
