Great white shark attacks shark cage with lightning speed



A great white shark rammed a shark cage with lightning speed in the famous shark-diving locale of Gansbaai, South Africa, recently, giving divers an adrenalin rush they won't soon forget.

Spencer Reilly, an American on his honeymoon, captured the scary, heart-stopping video and posted it on YouTube:



As is custom with shark-diving operations, the great white shark was lured toward the cage with bait, which was being pulled away from the fast-charging shark.

“That should not have happened really, they don’t like the shark to get too close to the cage, but there was low visibility and the shark came at the bait extremely fast,” Reilly told 9News.

“It was not too scary because it happened so fast, and then it was pretty exhilarating.”

It is encounters such as this one that keeps luring tourists to the adventure. 

Marine Dynamics Shark Tours, one of several shark-diving operators in the region, described the shark-diving it offers off South Africa:

“Gansbaai is a small coastal town a short two hour scenic drive from Cape Town which has earned itself the title of Great White Capital of the world. With Great White Sharks inhabiting the area for 12 months of the year, going Shark Diving in Gansbaai is a year round adventure not to be missed.”
