Sharks are notorious sea creatures and it's understandable they cause a stir when they show up unexpected. On April 7 in Hervey Bay, Australia, a couple riding a Jet Ski off Fraser Island experienced a close call when a six-foot bronze whaler shark swimming next to their jet ski, suddenly turned on them, going into attack mode with jaws wide open. They captured the moment when the shark turns and rams the side of their watercraft. This was one rather close encounter with one particularly large shark, and here is their story.

Libby Williams says “My wife and I were on our Yamaha FX Cruiser jet ski touring up the western side of Fraser Island, we noticed a shadow in the water and realized in was a rather large shark. We decided to get a little closer to take some video footage and we clearly got a little too close! No one was injured although the jet ski did get some small scuff marks where the shark contacted the ski."

Noticing the swimming shark, the couple decided to get a little closer to shoot a video when, as Libby’s husband explained “we clearly got a little too close!” and obviously, that agitated the shark. Williams said the shark nearly took a chunk of her leg!
Fraser Island is the world’s largest sand island and is known for great white sharks, bull sharks, bronze whaler sharks (also known as copper sharks) and tiger sharks. Bronze whaler sharks aren’t known to be aggressive toward humans unless there is a presence of food, or unless they are agitated by a Jet Ski.
