The ocean houses many amazing creatures. One such creature is the Great White Shark. As scary as they might be, they rarely attack humans and are actually relatively gentle creatures. They are valuable to the ecosystem of the ocean as they keep everything running smoothly. Have you ever wanted to see a Great White Shark up close before? Well it seems that the people in this clip saw one unexpectedly while going on a ocean outing!

A group of charter boat fishermen aboard the Stunmai II in Cape Cod Bay, Massachusetts, hooked a bit more than they bargained for on August 12, as a great white shark leapt from the water, snapping up their catch. Fishermen on two of the Stunmai’s charters dropped lines in the water hoping to reel in striped bass, but were surprised to see two great white sharks get to their catches before they could. Shark sightings are not unusual in this region, according to a post the uploader made to Facebook where they claimed that sightings often happen at least once per day, if not more.
