A large shark was captured on video checking out a group of fishermen off the Santa Barbara coast this weekend.

A group from a local company that charters fishing tours, Legit Sportfishing, posted a video showing what appears to be a great white shark swimming around their boat on Saturday.

The shark is estimated to be 18 to 20 feet long and calmly swam around the boat for several minutes, allowing passengers to capture photos and videos.

IF you compare the size of the guy sitting on the side of the boat to the shark in the water.. that shark is NOT 18 - 20 feet long. I would estimate it around 10 - 12 feet long, maximum. Beautiful, deadly .. but not quite 18+ .

@ 794 would you like exact GPS coordinates and for them to tag the shark next time so you can follow it? LOL! why does it matter WHERE? It's in the ocean and there are hundreds of thousands more....not sure where they are either

White shark populations are steadily increasing. We're going to have to learn how to coexist........ https://www.iflscience.com/plants-and-animals/white-shark-populations-are-growing-here-s-why-s-good-news/

COOLIO's got a point. Let's freak out at something that results in hardly any deaths compared to something we take for granted and yet is at least 10x more lethal.

If you're that fearful of the swimming in the ocean because of sharks than you may want to avoid riding a bicycle on the street because of cars are going for a hike in the woods because of wild animals.
