Video: Great Whites Feed on Minke Whale Carcass in Santa Barbara Channel

Passengers aboard an Island Packers Cruise vessel in the Santa Barbara Channel off Ventura, California had a real treat this past Sunday when they came across numerous sharks feeding on the carcass of a minke whale.

According to the Island Packers Facebook page, they spotted a total of three great whites and about a dozen blue sharks feeding on the whale.  Fortunately for us, some of the action was captured on this fantastic video.
