THE NEPTUNE ISLANDS, SOUTH AUSTRALIA - AUGUST 2014: A great white shark breaches out of the ocean, taken at The Neptune Islands, South Australia, August 2014. THE infamous great white shark has been stigmatised as a bloodthirsty killer for decades but many enthusiasts are trying to finally rid of this misconception. As the largest predatory fish on Earth, great white sharks can grow to an average of 15 ft in length, though individuals exceeding 20 ft have been recorded. With abilities to detect one drop of blood in 100 litres, its clear to see why film directors have used this enormous fish as a vicious predator in Hollywood blockbusters. Wildlife and nature photographer, Brad Leue, was undeterred by the great whites false reputation, and jumped at the chance to dive with them off The Neptune Islands, South Australia.

Can you even imagine?!  I know some people really live for this, but man it’s still scary.

Here are the details from PhillyVoice:

Jim Piazza went fishing with his cousin, his son and one of his son’s friends early Saturday morning on Piazza’s new boat. They were around the first mile marker north of Townsend’s Inlet and were half a mile or so off the coast around noon when they saw the shark in the water.

“We were on our way back in, and oddly enough, my son spotted the shark,” Piazza said Monday. “We almost ran it over. We turned back around and just circled it for the next 10 minutes.”

Piazza shared a pair of videos of the shark on Facebook, where the U.S. Coast Guard Station Cape May also shared the footage.
