Big Great White Circles Fishing Boat Off Australia Coast

Remember that scene in Jaws when Chef Brody sees the great white sharks and says, “You’re gonna need a bigger boat”?

That’s what the dad and son in this video are thinking when a shark circles their boat as they’re fishing.

Warning: There’s a great white circling their boat; you’d better believe there’s going to be swearing.

A family fishing in the ocean off the town of Busselton on the southwest tip of Western Australia probably got the scare of their lives.

The narrator says the great white is probably 16 feet long, longer than the boat as they fish in the Southern Ocean.

He tries to keep his boy calm, telling him it will be all right. But you can’t mistake the waver in his voice. And, like he says, his hands are shaking.

Fortunately for the family, great whites rarely attack boats.

Still, being circled by a shark can’t be the most comforting place to be on the water.
