Great White Sneaks Up on Family: My Drone Alerts Them of the Shark

Great White Sneaks Up on Family: My Drone Alerts Them of the Shark

This is footage I captured recently of a 9′ juvenile great white shark curiously lingering near a family, which included two kids. This shark followed the yellow kayak for approximately 100 yards. The family sees my drone above the shark and huddles together to appear larger. After a couple passes, the shark eventually appears to lose interest and disappears into the deep. Unlike most encounters I’ve filmed, these folks did not pursue the shark after the initial encounter. Although the shark remained nearby for a few minutes, it never returned to the kayakers.

    Hmmmm, I wonder if taking your children out to play in Great White Shark infested waters triggers any criteria for a safeguarding referral to social services in the USA?

  2. Lisa Fisher on June 22, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    why would you bring your kids out into shark infested waters??

  4. Alexander S on June 22, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    What beach area is this? And how often do you see these encounters?

    i just dont understand the logic of willingly going into the water where sharks are! you never know if you will be the one who will be met with a shark who is having a bad day. they are wild animals and we are entering their world! i get it if adults do it more power to them but why in the world would you take your kids holy crap!

    C’mon – This guy kept his drone out there because he was hoping to see a feeding frenzy and get more views.

  9. Sen on June 22, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    You could try integrating an audio transceiver, so that you can speak through the drone to warn nearby people. Or maybe just a pre-recorded audio.

    The family must have been thinking: that is an advanced shark using drones to find his prey

  11. Cedric Raphael on June 22, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    That would’ve been the longest couple of minutes of my life😩😩

    When are you norteamericanos gonna learn – when your child has a leg TASTED by the devil-fish?

  13. Davi Furtado on June 22, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    why would you take your kids kayaking in waters with great white sharks?

  14. wavyberserk on June 22, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    P rod older brother lol

  15. chris newman on June 22, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    Fish are very attracted to yellow and white (just sayin)

  16. Isa nuno on June 22, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    Sharks know the difference between people n other animals they are actually going after humans cuz the like to eat them

  17. Missing Link MTB on June 22, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    You did a good thing. I don’t think many would’ve done that, instead choosing to try and catch footage of a shark attack.

  18. slimethunderfire on June 22, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    Parents gives experience to their children but not danger…kayaking into that deep open water is not anymore a logical decision…that shark might have devoured one or to of your child if not because the warning u got from a person who controld the drone but not everytime it will go the way as what happnd thr…ur not going to blame sharks are u?

  19. Carlo Graziano on June 22, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    Great channel 👍🏽
    I would love it if you mentioned in each video which beaches you’re filming at. I think it would also generate extra interest. I’m born & raised in Huntington Beach which is why I’m extra curious if you’ve ever filmed any videos there and which ones. Keep up the great work 👍🏽

    Since when has _curious_ become a synonym for _hungry._

  21. Zaki Khan on June 22, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    dam bro, good job wit vid

  22. mega0876 on June 22, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    Stupid Dad, putting the kids life in cheap kayaks in the ocean 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

  23. XKMMx 213 on June 22, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    Is there anyway to warn us from boring narration?

  24. Adam Woodie on June 22, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Guys… stop giving sharks a bad name!
    All they want is to cuddle!

  25. Ducky Drummer on June 22, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    It would be cool if you had some way to communicate to the people below. Maybe some kind of speaker to alert them of the shark and letting them know when the shark is leaving the area.

    ps: This is also an excellent way to educate people that GWS are not always killers looking to topple small boats.

  26. StevenjacksonnAWD on June 22, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    Way to go dude this was awsome!

  27. Anthony Brown on June 22, 2022 at 7:44 pm

  29. Jennifer Le Chic on June 22, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    Does this guy remind anybody else of James Franco? I feel like he looks kinda like him and even sounds like him a bit.

    😨😨😨

  31. Crystal Oh on June 22, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    I would have had a heart attack and ended up in the water anyway.

  32. Joshua Garvey on June 22, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    Ok kids let’s go back out tomorrow.

  33. The Chav Chaser on June 22, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    Had the shark actually attacked the narrator would have said “I can tell it was about to attack – it’s predictable because it was circling so close…”

    When sharks don’t attack: “I could tell it wasn’t going to attack- it was just bored”

  34. Amelia Wojnicz on June 22, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    Scary…but what you do is awesome.

  35. Sheila Herrera on June 22, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Lol, I love how social media blows this up. The ocean is the sharks habitat!! Us people are in there territory.

  36. SumThin's Fishy on June 22, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Why are people so dumb? Putting yourself in harms way for what purpose? Then everyone will blame the shark when it attacks🙄

  37. Aaron Sanders on June 22, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Then small paddle boats is shark bait

  38. XKMMx 213 on June 22, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Shut up and show the sharks dude.

  39. Patience Norman on June 22, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Damn how far out from land, sand , beach whatever were they.

  40. Two In The Pink One In The Stink on June 22, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    *Not going to lie… it would’ve been cool to see the shark feast on the kids right in front of the shocked parents lol*

  41. Riley J on June 22, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Where is this?

  42. kaulana76 on June 22, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Why would you take your kids out this far?

  43. Mark Marsh on June 22, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    To sharks swimming below, a paddle board looks like a big fish — you have to be an absolute IDIOT to use one in the ocean.

  44. daniel thrasher on June 22, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    When i was working them drilling rigs in the Gulf i would see very big sharks swimming around the rig i would tell the workers if we have a fire and we have get the hell off the rig the fire will have to be kissing my ass before i would bell off into the water. lol

  45. Fly Bri on June 22, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Yea ! All these powerful people who knows or plan on XRP can’t over ride the SEC. what’s up with that .

  46. Jack 0 on June 22, 2022 at 8:05 pm

  47. Paul Polpiboon on June 22, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    @3:30 uhh…NO it is not curious. It is feeling out it’s opportunity

  48. Chris Praz on June 22, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Thank you for helping educate people on Shark behavior. I saw a thumbnail here on YT the other day of a shark with a bullet wound. Broke my heart.
