Tiger Shark Bumps Into Fisherman's Kayak in Hawaii

A fisherman got up close and personal with a tiger shark while he was out off Diamond Head, Hawaii, on July 4.

Devin Kanda had his legs in the water when he was surprised by the shark making a beeline for his boat.

Footage captured by Kanda’s GoPro shows the shark’s approach, as Kanda quickly moves away at the last moment.

He told KHON2 that the shark swam away following the encounter, and said that he was more surprised than scared by the incident.

He also added that he was “in awe” of the shark’s size. Credit: Devin Kanda via Storyful
