The shark is seen feasting on a dead sea lion floating a few feet from the ship.

The great white shark reportedly swam under the boat and then circled before returning to its meal, according to CBS Los Angeles.

The person recording the rare encounter shouts in the background, “Oh my god. Man. He’s a freak, man. Holy shit.”

It’s unclear how tall the great white shark was, but Instagram users in the comments section guessed it was between 15 and 18 feet.

The most recent encounter off California shores comes as an explosion of shark sightings hit US shores.

PADDLEBOARD ATTACKED

On August 10, a man and his dog were paddleboarding off Lovers Point Beach in Pacific Grove when they narrowly escaped the jaws of a shark after the huge beast bit down on their paddleboard.

The victim, David Stickler, told NBC that he spotted the creature moments after being intrigued by birds behaving strangely and flying erratically in the vicinity.

But he was confused as he saw what he initially assumed was either a friendly “small whale” or “bottom dolphin” approaching his paddleboard from the murky depths.

“My thought was a little whale…then it had a very sudden movement under me,” he said.

Stickler realized his perilous situation; however, he noticed the menacing “shadow” of the creature as it dipped lower, out of sight beneath him and his German Shepherd.

Seconds later, “he hit the board and spun really hard, grabbed onto the front of the board and hit it hard, and it was really shocking.”

The shark attacked his board, nibbling at it several times – just missing Stickler’s feet – and the move threw the pair overboard.

Photos of the terrifying attack showed the shark’s massive bite etched into the Stickler’s board.

In that moment of terror and fear for his life and the life of his beloved pet, he had “this little flash of like ‘God, no, don’t let me see [any attack]”.

Luckily, a nearby boat came to their aid and Stickler managed to bring his damaged board to safety on shore.

“WE ARE NOT THEIR FOOD”

Just two months before Stickler’s encounter, a 62-year-old man was brutally attacked by a great white shark on the same beach.

Steve Bruemmer was swimming at Lovers Point Beach off Monterey Bay on June 22 when the beast bit him.

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife identified the shark by the bite mark it left, noting that it is about 14 to 15 feet long, according to the LA Times.

While rumors swirled after a 20ft shark was attacked, wildlife officials have confirmed that there are rarely reports of sharks “much larger than 15-18ft long”.

Bruemmer said he was spared the attack due to a simple biological fact.

“I’m not a seal,” he said. “We are (humans) not their food.”

The 62-year-old needed 28 units of blood for his injuries and was released from hospital on July 13 after three weeks of rehabilitation.

Bruemmer was the second reported shark attack victim to have been bitten in California waters so far in 2022.

Shark sightings on US shores skyrocketed this summer, with more than a dozen attacks in New York, Florida, South Carolina, Maine and California.
