Great White Shark encounter whilst Kayak Fishing, Urunga, NSW, Australia

Had an awesome encounter with a very large Great White Shark in the kayak this morning. The footage kicks in after it had circled me once already and I decided to move away...unfortunately she decided to give chase, she was very curious. Such an awesome experience, I've caught small Sharks in the past, had juvenile Bull Sharks cruise past the yak in local estuaries...but nothing like this Beast. The last part of the footage was taken by Dave Barwise after I moved over near him, he caught some awesome footage of the Shark checking me out. Please excuse the language, panicked breathing and shaky footage...but I'm sure considering what happend you can understand my excitement and fear. Side note - please no stupid comments about killing sharks, I don't condone or agree to the culling of any Sharks. These type of Apex Predators are to be admired and respected, its their backyard...I'm only visting. Enjoy, KG 👍🦈 PS - the fishing was this was an exciting way to cap off the morning.

A shark is just basically a fish variety. People get so scared and are so amazed by them.
I look at and analyze and observe all animals and pets objectively, neutrally. No one is better or higher or lower then another.

That is so fucking cool. If I saw that fin turn and follow me, my heart would drop to my ass. I would be so scared that he would get a little too close and bump the kayak. Just one bump can knock you into the water, and then your splashing might intrigue him a little more. He's just a curious dude, but I would still be terrified of a bump or 'test bite.' So glad you followed him and took some video underwater, that is incredible.

I can empathize with the panic. I think you handled that fairly well by grouping up. The water slapping perhaps not your greatest moment. One observation I have is that the shark looks like it's moving off once your friend is pursuing it for footage. Which is consistent with shark behavior I have seen both personally and in other footage across a number of (admittedly smaller)species. Is that how it actually happened is this just the end of the footage you are showing us?

What were you guys even thinking!? Is this considered "normal" in Australia? You just go into the ocean with a little kayak thing fishing? That is a silly idea all along. And then you get back on dry land and maybe get bit by a snake or spider or stand on an something that poisons you in some way. Basically: it sucks to be you Australia. I wouldn't trade sun all year long for that. No way! Give me cold and rain. Just no ridiculous animals that can kill you in an instant Or poison you so you die slowly. I heard about how bad your customs is aswell. So bad they made programme out of it. Don't worry Australia. I plan to never visit! You can keep your sunshine I don't even want it.

Don't ever be afraid of sharks. If you ever run into a shark in the wild just flip it on its back and tonic immobility will make it go to sleep. Then you can safely swim away or invite some buddies over for some shark barbecue!

To me in a kayak in the ocean is just asking for it, like playing Russian roulette it's 50/50 if that shark wanted you in the water he could easily make you be in the water, the possibility is there, it will either act on it or not. I would never give a shark the chance, andputmyself at the hands of something else. rivers and lakes for this yak'r

You are fishing in waters know for their Great Whites, in a boat that, to them, looks like a seal, and you are loud and screaming which travels through water extremely well. The shark was just trying to figure out what you were about. His/ her fins aren't even pointing down so he/she is not even being aggressive.

Especially if s/he’d already been circling.

From the underwater footage it looks like s/he was probably curious rather than aggressive as your silhouettes would’ve looked different to seals or other standard white pointer prey so maybe just trying to suss out what you were - just lucky s/he wasn’t curious enough to take a bump or a test bite ....

Smacking the water only attracts the shark more! You're not very shark behavior educated- I suggest you do some homework before you get eaten. Kayaks attract sharks, slapping the water indicates you are a prey item. You're an idiot...

A lot of PhD shark experts in the comment section. You don't know shit about shark behaviour. There are people that have qualifications in this area and spend their life studying these animals, and still to this day shark behaviour is a very hypothetical case. There is very little evidence on these animals lifestyles. It was only a couple decades ago that the rogue shark was debunked, yet everyone believed that.

These animals are unpredictable. Yet somehow some self-proclaimed shark experts on the internet know exactly how this shark was behaving after a couple google searches and some couch time watching Shark Week on National Geographic.

There is a trick that works fantastic with sharks of most species. They make small firecrackers called “water bombs”. They are NOT seal bombs. These are tiny little things. They will not hurt a shark. Light one and give it a toss near the shark. The sharks don’t like the percussion and will haul ass the other direction. The “water bombs” was a brand name. But they are single small firecrackers with green visco and they have a small weight added inside the non fused end. They can be found under many names... such as “wonder boys” and things like that. If you cannot buy them in your area... make some. They are VERY simple to make. Keep four or five on your craft at all times. Trust me... if you ever do need them... it’s worth having them on hand. I started looking for answers nearly 10 years ago when a tiger shark began attacking my boat. It was after the scent of my days catch... but I was powerless. I will never forget that feeling if when a large shark sinks it’s teeth into your craft and starts a shake. It nearly had me flying overboard. I got the advice from an old timer at the docks I frequent. I have had only one opportunity to try it the crackers out. Trust me... they worked like a charm! Only took one pop and both sharks that were harassing me turned tail and headed away.

It’s worth trying. It won’t hurt anything. If you can’t buy them in your area... they are super simple to make. Just potassium perchlorate and dark aluminum dust. Be safe out there! When you’re in small craft... Never trust a shark. Even if they seem docile.

But, having this conversation with a friend from a fragile kayak on the ocean with the shark circling you seems like you are needlessly rolling the dice on your life.

I dont understand the mentality of kayakers, its simple people.. fishing attracts sharks, the more kayakers fish, the more sharks learn food is where kayaks are found, thats where the injured struggling fish are, (aka your catch). fishing in open waters attracts larger shark, fishing in a tiny kayak places yourself in harms way of obviously hungry sharks, and you better believe their senses can detect a large animal ,aka YOU, just inches from them. if the shark bites the kayak your done. hungry shark withe you in the water ,forget it. And one think for certain. If your out in a kayak, bring shark repellent, yes the can of dead shark bits. In every test ive seen, the stuff actually works.

Everyone saying it was just curious I bet it was at least a bit hungry.

He doesn't need to full on attack he just needs to decide he's curious what your boat tastes like and you are fucked.

My best guess, that shark might make habit of lurking about kayakers and other smaller fishing boats to steal catches. He’s a big boy, beefy for its length, like Bruce from Finding Nemo. I’m from Pennsylvania, landlocked, and not sure how rich the ecosystem is, but to me it looked fine, and maybe he was a bit curious.

Honestly, what scared me the most was the slapping of the paddle on the water. For some reason, my instinct told me I’ve heard slapping the water is similar to a wounded animal. For all I know, and if put in the same moment I might have easily done the same thing.
Tide16nc - 5 years ago
Chances are probably slim, but the main reason I don’t Kayak in the ocean. I know I’m small on the sharks food chain. 1 test blow and your helpless. Look at the kayaker on YouTube who had it happen. Luckily for him the shark stayed focused on the kayak and he was helped.

Well when you go into the water that far out, you risk being part of the food chain. You realize if he was hungry enough he would've just rammed your kayak from underneath, knocking you off and had a bite? That happened to some Japanese surfer of the central coast a couple years ago. The Great White knocked him into the air, then bit his legs off. The man didn't make it.

If the white wanted to eat you you wouldn't know until you were flying in the air after impact. Running away from it and slapping the water are the exact wrong things to do. If you were attacked it would have been natural selection at its finest.

Great whites are very intelligent and cerious Sharks, generally freindly. This ones looks too be a juvenile that was probably searching for the larger fish the fishers attracted. Splashing the paddels and keeping the electronic navigations on will only make it want to come closer. They see the electromagnetic spectrum.

Christian Buczko
Christian Buczko - 5 years ago
The shark was following the trail of shit you were leaving in the water as you frantically tried to run away from it. If he was hungry, the first you'd know is as it hits, i think he was curious about what you were. With curious sharks, i think the best option is to remain calm and not try to flee.
Christian Buczko
Christian Buczko - 5 years ago
To be clear, i didn't say he was in danger or going to be attacked. I said it looks curious, so remaining calm is best idea. Frantic paddling could attract it more as can splashing around, or fish bait ect. As you said, they don't target kayaks, but can bite, where as something sounding like its panicking can make any hunter think prey and attack. its his perception of the situation which produced his fear reaction though.
Christian Buczko
Christian Buczko - 5 years ago

Christian Buczko thanks captain shark week. But no you wouldnt only know after it hits, he's in a Kayak. Sharks don't hunt kayaks like they'd hunt a fucking seal, plus this is Australia and they don't hunt that way anyway. People have had curious whites follow them around and then eventually bite kayaks before. People have had whites hang around and eventually attack in the water. Yes they prefer to ambush hunt their usual prey. When they see a slow retarded thing that they are unsure of, they know they can have a closer look.

However yes, if he didn't panic and try to rush away and then splash water with a paddle to "scare" might not have hung around as long

Wait till you have one shoot up from underneath you, and slam into the bottom of your Kayak sending you up in the
air ,(almost like a bus hit you) then coming down ( confused not understanding what happened ) and having one of your feet
land on the coarse skin of the shark, with your kayak now10 yards away and the monster swimming below , You better hope you had a leash
on your paddle in case you make it to the kayak . If your lucky, like I was , there will be a Thick Kelp Bed close by so you can
asses the damage to your body and to your kayak. When you decide to make a B line to the shore, you will feel alive.
And in my case frightened adding to that feeling . Making it to shore you might say " thats it, this is the second time i have
been knocked off my kayak By a Great White , I selling the Kayak " (After you repair it) Then in a short time the adrenaline will wear off and
you will realize that pain in your back is so bad you cant stand up .
Now I have seen several dozen juvenile great whites smaller than 8 feet , even had several 8' - 9' G.W.'sfollow me and circle . You ask how do
i know their length because my kayak was 12 feet long . The one that slammed into me was as big if not bigger than my kayak .
All I can say is there are more Great Whites now then they wanna admit, especially here in California. Your chances of
being attacked are good, if they habit your area. You know this. I was down 3- weeks because of my back .
I reported my attack to the Life guard then to sheriff department , they wouldn't take the report because no county official
seen the attack even though my kayak was on top of my Rover with bite marks into it. It makes me think just how many
attacks aren't being reported. If I had a go pro I could've went to the media and they would have to accept that
Be careful , think about a boat.

I was thinking maybe if I had a go pro and it somehow stayed on after the
impact , I could've shown the video to the press of even to the sheriff or
life guard. Im not sure if it being a cloudy day had anything to do with it
and the fact the water clarity is has gotten so horrible in the last 9-10 years,
I was thinking the shark was looking up and thought I was a seal or something
I dont know . It was like a bus hit me , and I will not Fish from a Kayak in the

emperorofpluto - 5 years ago
Damon Hargrave You are right about the regional variations - the ambush hunting technique (where they strike from below with incredible force) was first observed as a distinctive feature of the White Pointer population off the coast of South Africa, like the one that attacked Mick Fanning.
Researchers believe that they developed this technique as a way of overwhelming the seals and penguins they prey on which are often so fast and manoeuvrable they can elude capture using standard attack strategies - this discovery of regional variations in hunting technique also caused a reassessment of how we assess shark intelligence, since it proves they’re a lot smarter than had been assumed, are capable of learning and adapting their strategies to different prey.
Never encountered a white pointer in the wild but used to live in French Polynesia and Hawaii and have swum with bull sharks, lemon sharks and even tiger sharks (in ocean passes WHILE they were being fed by locals) which was the most amazingly spiritual experience of my entire life - those sharks all have very distinctive body language when they’re about to attack, not sure about white pointers tho.

MOON LANDINGS DENIER SPACE IS FAKE it's not going to "ambush hunt" a kayak. You've watched too much shark week. This is Australia they don't hunt the same way everywhere in the world. Whites have approached slowly stayed in vision and attacked many people before. They have also bumped kayaks and attacked them after hanging around. Just because you watched shark week a few times doesn't make you an expert. P

However I do think you're correct and it didn't seem anything more than curious, but correct for the wrong reasons.

The shark expert getting his calf torn off by the big female bull shark is one of the clearest attacks captured! Had he not lifted and twisted his leg up as she bit, she would have dragged him out and he would've been a goner. They are curious and highly aggressive, so it wasn't the smartest thing to stand among them to begin with.

The great white footage from the 1990s with the young woman's leg being taken off, she was taken onto the cruise ship that was nearby and emergency first aid by a medical staff onboard is what saved her life! She went into cardiac arrest a few times and they brought her back, such massive blood loss. She truly is lucky to have gotten to a hospital still alive and to be alive in general, so many fatalities that have occurred are from above knee bites/amputations/groin area when the femoral artery is severed (takes only a couple minutes).

Yea I finally looked because I was curious. I cannot find the footage I saw that day. I was living in Papua New Guinea at the time I saw that on the news, which is why I associated it with Australia. but the footage i see online is not as good as the footage i remember. Because i remember seeing her get pulled into the boat, and I don't see that footage online anywhere. Just her swimming and and getting attacked. But I believe there was more footage that day. But as the internet wasn't what it is now, I would not be surprised if that footage never found it's way onto the web.
For anyone who thinks sharks will not attack... apologize for the narrator who does a terrible job of it, but good examples of bull sharks attacking)

K MAO sorry you are likely correct. I am scared to watch that footage again, so didn't want to confirm, but admit my memory is foggy since I saw that footage last at least 10 years ago. So yea, sounds correct. I just remember them grabbing her, and her leg popping off... I don't really want to see it again. So thanks for the correction...
I also just remember seeing the shark glide towards her, the shark was moving so little yet easily caught her. It made me realize just how useless we are in the water.
I felt that again a 1 year after that when snorkeling off the great barrier reef. And had a parrot fish that was keen on taking off my nose, and defending myself from a parrotfish made me realize this is definitely not our home, as much as it feels right and beautiful in many ways, it is there home, and they can move much easier through it.
I have dived with reef sharks and learned a thing or two about what it is like when you cannot see what is below the surface of the water unless you put your head down in the direction you are worried about. Lots of reasons why I would not be at all interested in swimming with anything bigger than a 5-6 reef shark...

The Journey Just off the top of my head, i believe they were off the coast of Chile, it was an educational trip, and group of people jumped into the water. That one woman was far from the group and everyone yelled for them to get back to the boat. But she was far off and the White shark took a leg off. She did manage to swim to a smaller boat that came to her. 1994.... I watched the news the day it happened.

Yes, they are curious, they even have a playful side people have brought out in them. But that doesn't mean this momma will not clamp down on a nice tasty limb.
If you want to see stuff of horrors that backs this up. Search on the internet for the great white attack from many years ago that happened in australia with a bunch of snorklers, a great white came into a bunch of boats where tourists where swimming around, exactly like this, slow, and not in any hurry. One woman swam for the boat, it trailed behind her, and as she reached the boat it clamped down on her leg, which came right off as the people on the boat tried to help her into the boat. I believe she survived, minus a leg, and she was lucky to survive at all. I can't imagine how they stopped the bleeding but they must have had first aid aboard. But yea, they will attack humans, they are curious, and they are hungry, that is how they survive, they eat, all the time... Nothing wrong with that, they are amazing beautiful creatures, but she would attack if she saw an easy opportunity...

It might be small but they are incredible predators when they need to be. Plus have you seen some of the tricks people have taught gold fish. Can't imagine the size of a gold fish brain but they can actually appear as very intelligent. I'd be pooping my pants about getting knocked off that yak and gums having a taste of my arms and legs.

3.5 metres max. Still wouldn't want to be out there on a kayak though. Saw one about this size off Trigg beach in Perth WA while out surfing. Once you see one you never forget. Never felt more alive. Lucky the one i saw was busy chasing bait fish up the coast and didn't take any interest in us surfers even though we were no more than 4-5m away.

You can always try shark diving. I go each year and I always see people who are nervous/scared. 10 mins later they're having fun. I have a few videos from my shark diving trips. This past March I was surrounded by 6-7 Bull sharks. Check it out.

Jaws is the reason why sharks have a bad rep. The media has brainwashed lots of people into believing that sharks are these man eating machines when in reality they don't even like the taste of us. Our blood doesn't attract them as well, it's all a myth.

Joseph Saeteurn like I said. People getting suddenly hit, are most likely people who just didn't see the shark. We all know how seal dummies get hit, that study showed when the white initially charged at it and suddenly stopped. The shields would work if that was the case. Those people getting "suddenly hit" are most likely just having the shark hang around and they never notice it until it hits.
Joseph Saeteurn
Joseph Saeteurn - 5 years ago
@Damon I have heard a lot of stories about kayakers all of a sudden just get thrown 6 feet up in the air landing back down on kayak. the ones you don't see are the ones you should be worry about. nothing will work 100% all the time and there will be the exception of a rogue shark. i heard of divers who use the shields so i don't know if it works or not but i guess if you do have one, it kinda ease your mind and focus more on fishing so i don't know if that's a good or bad thing.
Damon Hargrave
Damon Hargrave - 5 years ago
Joseph Saeteurn I think when you're in a kayak, You're not going to really get hit hard suddenly and surprise attacked. its gonna be curious about the kayak and hang around it at first. Sure the shield will prevent a sudden attack. But I don't see that likely on a kayak. Even people who have been "suddenly hit" on kayaks, id bet the shark would have been hanging around for a while, it would just be a surprise because they didn't see it. If that's the case, the shield wouldn't stop anything. I don't think a white is going to hunt a kayak like it would a seal.....even with seals they often follow below for a while before coming in hard. So yeah I'd agree it prevents sudden charging attacks. But I don't see sudden attacks on a kayak very likely to begin with. And it doesn't prevent the more likely thing to happen, which is being followed for a little while before the "adjustment" then whatever it decides comes next.
Joseph Saeteurn
Joseph Saeteurn - 5 years ago
@Damon link your source of info that says shark can adjust to it? maybe they can but why would you not have it on, on the water? having it on may deter the surprise attack versus to not having it on.there are kayakers that sworn of not going out without one.
Damon Hargrave
Damon Hargrave - 5 years ago
Make Nitro Great Again a shark shield is a slightly gimmicky things that puts out a electric field made to hurt the Sharks electroreceptors....the human equivalent would be if I shined a torch in your eyes. Your eyes sense light, if you overload them with a lot of light it hurts. It's basically the same thing. Except sharks adjust to it. Similar to how if you walk outside and it's so bright you have to squint, then after a few minutes you eyes adjust and you're fine. Sharks adjust and get used to it. So best thing to do is turn them on after you see the shark.

Although somewhat useful and good in theory. They're kinda gimmicky and just for peace of mind. I've tried spearfishing with one and sharks honestly don't give the slightest fuck about it if you leave it on. You can see it bother them if you turn it on suddenly around it's useful to have off and be ready to turn on, but at the end up of the day most of the time if you're gonna get attacked, you're not gonna see it coming. So it's useless

This is like a lifelong dream of mine! I would have been thrilled, but im sure nervous too. I've seen a vast majority of great white footage that's available to the public and IMO, that shark is simply wanting to say "hey who are you. What's up buddy?" lol. I think you guy's reaction was normal and i applaud you for respecting this beautiful animal and acknowledging that you are a guest in his home! I bet this was an awesome experience!

TheDcrocks1 They are ambush hunters who attack from below thinking your their preferred prey a seal. First bite is exploratory but a damaging bite in which it’s victim will bleed out and the Great White can dine later at its leisure.
