West coast sharks around the jet ski

West coast sharks around the jet ski

"The west coast of New Zealand is well known for the amount of sharks inhabiting the area. This footage is from a trip where I encountered multiple sharks while fishing for yellow tail kingfish and albacore Tuna. They are awesome creatures and should be treated with utmost respect, it's cool to be up close to them after getting over the initial fright or surprise." - Glen Cox
