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!
