A marine research team doing aerial wild life observations just of the coast of California caught a GoPro footage of a huge great white shark swimming just inches from their tiny wooden boat.
The huge beast swimmed straight at the crew and bashed into a piece of equipment one of the researchers was dangling in the water. It then took a sharp turn away from the boat and thrashed its tail out of the water with a splash.
The shark then went away and appeared to float in the water. The team continued to monitor its movements.
