"Holy crap" is an appropriate reaction to have when a Great White shark just casually starts swimming around your fishing boat.
Father and son, Gino (42) and Devin (18) DellaCava, were on a fishing trip together (awwww) near Ponce Inlet, Florida when a shark started circling them. Gino caught the shark on video and, naturally, son Devin posted it on his Facebook page. In the video, you can hear someone saying, "holy crap," after someone else announces that it's not just any shark, but a Great White, a.k.a what Jaws was.
Gino DellaCava told News 13, "She circled the back of our boat, and I was able to grab my phone and start to record. And I recorded as she swam the other side of the boat and then swam away." He also estimated that the shark was about 14 feet long.
Check out the video to see just how close the shark gets to the boat. Honestly, this is probably one of the most exciting father/son fishing trips ever.
