Newly surfaced video shows a great white shark attacking a kayaker in Monterey Bay.
Gene Mace caught the terrifying encounter on camera on March 18. In the video, Mace can be heard telling his wife that the kayaker was pushed into the water by a shark.
His wife called for help, as Mace continued filming. The video shows the great white’s fin popping in and out of the water as the kayak was thrashed around. About four minutes later, the struggling kayaker was pulled out of the water by a passing sailor.
Back in March, Brian Correiar described a dangerously close encounter with a great white shark while he was kayaking in Monterey Bay. The attack he detailed in a blog post reportedly happened on the same day.

Correiar told the story from his perspective: “I heard a loud bang as my kayak and I flew into the air. I landed outside my boat, look back to it and to my horror saw a large great white shark no more than three feet away had my kayak in its mouth.”
