Swimmer Encounters Great White Shark


This footage of a Great White Shark near a swimmer was captured on August 16th, 2020. While doing a routine shark monitoring drone flight, I came across a man swimming behind the breakers. The man is clearly surprised at first glance and reacts accordingly, by not panicking and keeping eye contact. However, some of the following behavior is questionable. I’m including a few tips along with the footage to provide some information about what to do and what not to do if you encounter a shark while swimming.
