Great White Shark Surprised by Gray Whale in Rare Encounter

In this video, I finally capture a moment I knew was possible but would be hard to achieve. A great white shark and a gray whale together. It would require patience, research, and a bit of luck, but it's a moment that will rank high on my list of great white shark encounters to film. As an added bonus, I was fortunate enough to see a great white shark, a gray whale, and a dolphin in the frame. 00:00:35 Great White Sharks in Shallow Water 00:01:21 Great white sharks encounter dolphins 00:02:29 Humans and great white sharks 00:03:43 Gray whales surprise a kayaker 00:05:11 Great White Shark Encounters a Gray Whale & Dolphins Your support is greatly appreciated on this channel.
