We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again - the deep dark waters of the ocean are filled with wonders. We know so little of what is really hiding in its depths, it sometimes even scares us.

When we think of sharks, the first thing that comes to mind are their sharp teeth and beady eyes. These forces of nature can literally freeze the blood in our veins. Some of them are so notorious, they are known to be able to snap a human body in half. However, more gruesome than those instances are the shark corpses found in the ocean. If we think that sharks are dangerous, we need to think again because the dark waters are filled with forces to be reckoned with.

Despite their ill reputation, we can’t ignore the facts that sharks are a masterpiece. They have lithe bodies that are able to thread waters despite their weight. And if you think that they are slowed down by their built, think again. They are so fast that escaping them requires a certain amount of skill, and an enormous amount of luck. It’s only normal that we are afraid of them. This video, however, shows us a different view of sharks. They look mighty different when you aren’t in the way of danger.

A group of German tourists got the shock of a lifetime when a hungry great white attacked their rubber boat. These images show the 12ft female savaging the side of the vessel, causing part of it to deflate. The attack took place off the coast of Mossel Bay in South Africa. The tourists had been on a sightseeing expedition to watch seals when the shark turned up. Rainer Schimpf, who organised the tour, believes the shark mistook the boat for a dead whale.

This is absolutely incredible! The tourist in this boat must have been really scared as if their boat had sunk, the unthinkable could have happened. The shark most likely mistaken the boat for a big seal, as sharks do not attack people as often as the media portrays it. Either way, this really was a scary moment to behold. Good thing everyone is alright!

As much as a scary moment this was, it was still a fascinating moment to be up close and personal with a wild shark! Not many people get a chance to do something like that! Good thing the tourist had the proper water gear as that is what could have saved their lives!

It seems that these great monsters of the deep have a growing fascination with man's vessels. Another Great White was captured on camera trying to take a bite off another, far sturdier boat off Port Lincoln in Australia.

This is one startling video that no one wants to miss!
