We can only imagine that the famous "Jaws" quote went through these two fishermen's minds while sailing off the coast of Australia: "We're gonna need a bigger boat!" Their peaceful morning sail was interrupted by a 13-foot long great white shark! The beast circled their boat for ten minutes, looking directly at the men and taking hits at their motor. Luckily, they made it back to shore in one piece to tell the story.
Over in Guerrero Negro in Baja, Mexico, another group's close encounter with marine life was much more lighthearted. Playful grey whales pining for belly rubs surround a boat, taking turns at the surface to interact with the humans for over an hour. Calves and adults alike begged for scratches, just like our own furry friends on land!
