Filmed White Shark in front of my house


I've been a diver and a guide for a long time. I've done many dives with white sharks but this was different. I now realize that the past 20 years I have been swimming with these guys in front of my house. It's quite shocking to really grasp it. As you will tell by my language I was having trouble grasping that the stranded pilot whale I had ran down to the beach to save was actually a 15 ft white shark.

Call in the Orcas. They enjoy white shark livers. There have been recent reports they have run the great whites away from the Farallon Isjands after attacks off of San Francisco, and now off of South Africa also.

We need those monsters alive to keep the fish pyramid in line! Too bad it was hit by a propeller. I didn't realize they are actually gray?

This was just north of Puertecitos. It was dark grey almost black. From a distance I thought it was a pilot whale

Wow. Did you get to pet the shark?

I couldn't watch the video in the US without logging in. Just arrived in Sweden, where no login was required.

Don't know about SA remarks, Lancair.
Went down to SA last year and got in the cage to view the White Sharks....

They were everywhere in all shapes and sizes

The biggest we encountered was a 16' Female

Unnerving to see them within a couple feet of your face!
