Video: Hammerhead Shark Visits California Sailboat Kayaker

Hammerhead shark nears kayak sailboat off Solano Beach San Diego CA
This is one of those videos that you just sit back and enjoy watching things unfold. It was shot off Solana Beach in San Diego, CA and the camera used was a GoPro...imagine that ;-)

For the first minute or so we get to see David Applegate cruising at a decent clip in his kayak sailboat. It looked to be a beautiful Southern California day and its enjoyable just taking in the scenery.

At the 1:10 mark, David gets a visit from a lifeguard on a jet ski. They appear to be friends.

At the 1:40 mark, we get to see the guest of honor, a hammerhead shark. At first the shark keeps his distance but at the 2:15 mark, it makes a beeline for David's kayak and ends up swimming directly under him.

It's a cool video and David did a great job with the camera work even giving us some underwater shots. Gotta love GoPro.  Posted by David Applegate
