Great White Shark Chases Kayak Fisherman

Shark attack


That’s not the thing you want to have curious in you when you’re out in a kayak.

Great white sharks are one of the most fascinating and feared predators in the ocean. Adult great white sharks can grow up to 20 feet in length and weigh over 4,000 pounds. Great white sharks have a streamlined and powerful body shape that allows them to move quickly through the water.

Apex predators, they are at the top of the food chain in the ocean. They have powerful jaws and sharp teeth that allow them to easily tear through the flesh of their prey. Great white sharks are known to feed on a variety of animals, including fish, sea turtles, seals and even other sharks.

Great white sharks are some of the fastest swimmers in the ocean, capable of reaching speeds of up to 35 miles per hour. They use their powerful tail fin to propel themselves through the water, and their streamlined body shape helps them to move quickly and efficiently.

Naturally, most people don’t want this fish checking them out when they are sitting in a small piece of plastic. But, it’s the risk of the ocean sometimes.

This fella was out on the ocean for a kayak fish somewhere in Australia when a great white circled him and when he tried to move away it just kept following him. The man captured a video as he was trying to escape.

“It’s chasing me, it’s chasing me!”

The man yells out to his friend as he quickly paddles away. You can see the shark fin sticking out the water trailing behind him.

The fisherman dunks his GoPro camera in the water and you can see the shark follows him a bit but ultimately, he is alright.

That would get the heart pumping though… what a beast.

California Fisherman Watches Great White Shark Circle His Kayak

This is a moment where I would simply have a heart attack and die.

We’ve all seen the videos, pictures, or even experienced it ourselves. A shark of some kind gets uncomfortably close to somebody, and they either swim away and don’t want to be bothered, or they go ape shit and attack the person.

Here we have one of those “too close for comfort” moments, where a massive Great White shark approaches a fishermen on his kayak, and circles around it for a few minutes.

Just put yourself in those fisherman’s shoes.

You’re hopelessly sitting in your kayak, and one of the most dangerous creatures in all of the ocean begins to swim right underneath you, and all you can do is wait around and hope it leaves.

That’s a situation I pray that I never get in.

It was all caught on a GoPro in some wild footage.

The fisherman tells the tale in the caption:

“I was catching bait when a large Great White Shark swam under my kayak. It circled me for 2 minutes, then swam away peacefully. One of the best experiences of my life.”

Excuse me, best experiences of your life?

More power to ya, my guy, because I would be absolutely mortified.

But hey, to each their own I guess.

Paddleboarder Captures Video Of Whale Swallowing Two Kayakers In California

What in the great blue ocean…

This has to be some of the craziest stuff I’ve ever laid eyes on., but more importantly folks, this is why the ocean scares the life out of me.

It probably all started with some innocent fun as a group of kayakers were out for a paddle near Avila Beach, California, when they notice a whale surfacing and make their way closer for a better view.

Bad idea…

This video comes with angles from two different people out on the water and clearly, they knew the whale was around them. They certainly never would have expected this to happen.

As the kayakers float around looking into the water to lay eyes in the beast of a whale you begin to see it surface right by a pair of kayakers in one boat.

All in one motion the whale picks their kayak up as the fall directly into the whale’s mouth. He pulls them under water as he closes his mouth.

Holy… talk about an adrenaline rush you were not expecting. And what are you supposed to do if you’re witnessing this? Swim after the whale?

This just doesn’t happen…

The kayakers get spit back out and the whale goes along on its merry way. Everyone was fine following the incident, and no injuries were reported, but talk about a living nightmare.

Watch out for those human-swallowing whale out there folks…
