Best Great White Shark Drone Footage of 2021 (Narrated)

Best Great White Shark Drone Footage of 2021 (Narrated)

This is my annual collection of my favorite great white shark moments I filmed with my drone over the course of this year. A two part installment this year, this part focuses on human-shark encounters and shark-sting ray encounters. All captured from above in 4K.

I’m NOT a marine biologist or naturalist. As with all YouTube content, I encourage independent verification of facts via official scientific and trustworthy sources. I will strive to post citations for any information I discuss here whenever possible. My goal is to use photography and drones to bring awareness to wildlife and the nature around us. I welcome collaborations with scientists to bring cinematic elements to the educational presentation.

    Yo fuck that!

  3. Kellie R on June 13, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    Sorry, all this does is confirm I should stay out of the ocean because I have even less idea what’s around me than I ever did.

    Dude these are amazing shots .. ty !

  6. Craig Cummings on June 13, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    Amazing, well done.
    I never "like" videos…..but this one gets 2022’s.

  7. Soulpower75 on June 13, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    Jaws and Hollywood has a lot to answe for.

  8. Keyser Soze on June 13, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Nat Geo should be contacting you for Shark Week! Great work MA!! I have been fascinated by GWS since I was a kid and this is one of the best videos I have seen. You should have millions of subscribers

  9. Anthony Condo on June 13, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    Well, there goes any notion of me going into the ocean ever again. Lol. And I was raised in a beach town, and spent every waking moment in the summers that I could at the beach and in the water. 😳🦈

  10. Sandra D. on June 13, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    That was amazing thank you for sharing.

  11. Rachel on June 13, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    How sad that this isn’t the type of footage that’s shown on like Discovery or most nature docs. Instead they go for stuff that raises anxiety and fear of the viewer. This is absolutely amazing to see.

  12. old ogre on June 13, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    Almost ALL White shark attacks on humans occur when the human does not see the shark, and White sharks almost always attack from behind. If you truly want to learn about sharks and WHY they do what they do I cannot recommend this man enough!

  13. svenzia on June 13, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    Subbed. That was beautiful!

  14. DR. SCOTT on June 13, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    Tolle Aufnahmen. Ich hoffe, dass deine Arbeit den Menschen zu einer besseren Sichtweise und Akzeptanz dieser großartigen Geschöpfe verhilft. Mach bitte genau so weiter ✊🏼✨👍🏼

    Sharks leaving "chem trails".
    What next?

  16. old ogre on June 13, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Personally I think sharks especially White sharks are the Oceans Gleaners they are like the Desert Coyotes, or Wolves or the Wild Dogs of Africa. They will take healthy prey if they HAVE to in order to survive but their main source of food is the old, weak, wounded or otherwise unfit. This is why the "prey" animals are usually not afraid of the sharks, they know what is up. I also think Sharks are FAR more intelligent than anyone gives them credit for especially the Great Whites, they THINK, can learn and more importantly can remember. It’s insane to think that the oldest predator on the planet got that way by sheer dumb luck! No they are survivors…

  17. Eve on June 13, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    When sharks get close to people, I am starting to worry more about the health and safety of the sharks. Too many hooks in their mouths and fins damaged by fishing line.

    Absolutely incredible!!! This is an amazing compilation!!! One of the most interesting and fascinating videos I’ve been fortunate enough to stumble upon!
    Thank you for sharing!

  21. Notquiteultralight on June 13, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Very well done!

  22. Steve Jenkins on June 13, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    Bull sharks are the ones you don’t want swimming around you.

  23. Petroleumalley on June 13, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    We need a bigger boat.

  24. Mithun Mathew on June 13, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    Great video, nice work…kudos

  25. Phantom 1249 on June 13, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    Love seeing the behavior of these amazing animals. Thank you for the excellent content!

  26. Chip Seal on June 13, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    When there is no God above the state, the state becomes god (By definition, an idol, a false god)—the highest authority in the lives of those governed.
    If God is dead, everything is permitted.

  27. N1originalgazza on June 13, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    Amazing video, amazing voice! The things you show about sharks are priceless…thank you!

  28. Michael Davy on June 13, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    In Cape Cod great white sharks often drag themselves along the bottom to rid themselves of parasites.

  29. Kuban P on June 13, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    Or they are too smart to leave evidence 😀

  30. Woxineau Crows on June 13, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    Education like this should be shown in schools and on the beach on a big screen.Why divers and swimmers use black is a mystery to be it resembles seals and is so stupid.Great video man~

  31. Benjamin on June 13, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    I just wanna say that i truly and sincerely appreciate what you do. I live in Minnesota, but I do have minimal experience with the ocean from when i was a kid. I have had nightmares throughout my life of the ocean and sharks, and it has produced what i now consider to be an unreasonable fear of both. Somehow watching your videos has brought me comfort and greatly needed perspective. I sincerely thank you for that. a small story… I visitied Los Angeles maybe ten years back. I stood on the beach as waves would come close to me. One wave came to close, and i stepped back, out of fear. I did not touch the water. That was it. That short moment has became one of the greatest regrets of my life. I was there, face to face with the ocean, and i did not touch it. again, out of fear. But youre videos have made me feel like i need to go back, and not only touch the ocean, but jump in. i cant thank you enough. be well.

  32. Drake C on June 13, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    It also proves there is no mistaken identity they know exactly what they’re attacking or biting or test biting they absolutely are not stupid as some people think. The attacks are super rare But when they do happen it is not a mistake

  33. jamblman on June 13, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    Very nice footage. But I’m sorry to say, it’s just a matter of time that the inevitable will happen..

  34. D B on June 13, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    It’s a personality thing I’d say. Asshole sharks will bite everything.

  35. Alexandros Nikos on June 13, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    I’ve tried and failed to write a response to this response 5 times. I don’t even know where to start with walking through life and feeling like YOU are the one that’s going to get struck by lightning or attacked by a beastie. It must be terrifying and tiring too. <<< He never said he was afraid of anything goober.

  36. John Beckwith on June 13, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Thanks for exposing the swarms of man-killers off our coast. This explains the regular gruesome White Shark kills in the area. Did ya manage to film the dude on X-mas Eve last year who nearly got his head bitten off while body boarding? He’s dead of course. It was confirmed to be a White shark. The 3rd one last year.
    We need to end Federal protections for this beast. Enough in enough, you enviros have gotten plenty of people killed over your obsession with a shark that needed no help……

  37. Ken Leary on June 13, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    GOD has created some awesome Creatures.

  38. jared martin on June 13, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    What type of lins or mode aloud you to get that footage of those sting rays?

  39. Christopher on June 13, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Don’t try this on the East Coast. The Adult Great Whites feed here. Probably why there isn’t a big surfer culture on the East Coast

  41. Rayvon Dormer on June 13, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Amazing your videos have given me insight on shark behavior and I see them in a different light. I will say I’ve always believed when you enter the water you enter their realm. Kia ora 💕

  42. alexandanu on June 13, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    Very well done video

  43. Pat Martin on June 13, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Great footage. So for me this is more evidence that’s supports the ( mistakin identy ) theory is totally bogus. Even the juvenile pointers know the kayakers, surfboarders, and swimmers are not seals/sea lions.

  44. rikkierikkie on June 13, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Is it not as simple as shark not hungry shark no eat stingray?
    I mean, when I’m not hungry I’m not going to McDonalds 🤷‍♂️

  45. nerdnurse on June 13, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Beautiful stuff

  46. Dimitri Doni on June 13, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Go tell poor Simon Nellist!

  47. JabberCT on June 13, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    Really interesting stuff!

  48. Benjlite on June 13, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    Amazing. Educational as we tend to glamorize their demise.

  49. ミエコ on June 13, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    this is why i love sharks so much but also fuck dolphins

  50. ME911119 on June 13, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    1. How are these sharks very close to the shore?

    2. Is it common to find sharks next shores?

    3.What kind of sharks come close to shore, if any?

    4. are those kinds agressive/potentially dangerous?
