Video: Tourists on Great White Cage Dive Get Double Surprise

Great white hits cage in South Africa.
This group of great white shark tourists got a double surprise when a large great white first hit their cage head on and then followed it up with a hard tail slap.  It is quite clear from the audio in the video, the folks inside where shocked and thrilled with their close encounter.

It is not clear from the video if the bait handler pulled the shark towards the cage or if the shark swam at the cage after grabbing the bait.

The video is from a great white cage tour earlier this year in Gansbaai which is located in Western Cape, South Africa.  It is 42 seconds in length.
