“While I was in the other submersible cage, this shark, which seemed aggressive early on, just casually swims up and bites the shark cage’s air supply. As soon as this happens, our cage has half the supply we had, and breathing becomes labored through the entire event. While the dive master is switching air supply for his cage, the shark decides to dive down into the cage with 3 other divers. It then wedges itself into the cage. Luckily no one was hurt, including the shark.” – Peter Maguire. For more info please visit bluewaterdivetravel.com
Meet Dan Hoey, the owner and operator of Salty Dog Charters in Port Fairy, Victoria. On one of his charters, Hoey realised that an extremely large shark had started to circle the boat. It was even trying to take some chomps into the boat, he said: “This big beast turned up and wouldn’t leave us alone. It nearly took a chunk out of my Yamaha motors, leaving a few small dents and scratches.” So, he did what any absolute maniac would do – he shoved it away with a garden broom.

22-year-old college student Tyler McQuillen said: “I was diving off the coast of Santa Barbara at Refugio Point when I was hit in the back, I thought it was my friends playing a joke on me. I lost grip of my speargun which I quickly retrieved and then it hit me. A HUGE great white which was at least 12ft long attacked me from the left side. It quickly circled around me and I used my speargun to keep it away.” Holy sh*t, remind me to never swim in murky water with bait tied to me. You’re in a 3d environment, you’re not really well equipped to get out of quickly, and you’ve got to hope sharks don’t sense your thrashing, bleeding kills tied to your waist. This is why I always carry a knife. So I can cut my diving buddy and escape while he bleeds and the shark eats him.

A gang of sharks can be seen swarming violently during the whale buffet off the shores of Cape Cuvier, near Carnarvon in Western Australia. Grant and his son Sam Eastland were awe-struck at the spectacle, which saw some of the sharks come so close to the shore they almost beached themselves. For Sam, the lure of touching a shark proved too much as he ran into the water during the frenzy. “I wanted to see if I could grab it,” he said. “But I got a bit too wet.”
