Some Boston fishermen got the shock of their life when a huge great white shark slowly circled their modest sized boat.
The men managed to videotape the shark cruising the North Carolina coast and circling their boat.
WRAL.com reports that Matt Garrett of Boston and some friends were fishing 25 miles from Wrightsville Beach.
Garrett says the 18-foot shark circled the boat for several minutes and slapped it with its tail.
WRAL reports that Paul Barrington of the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher confirmed that the video shows a great white shark, which is rare for the North Carolina coast.
