The feat proves treacherously difficult as a great white appears and forcibly pulls the rope that ties their small boat to a yacht. On a boat not bigger than the size of the sharks, the two experts engage in a nerve wrecking and totally heart-pounding encounter with the great whites.

The great white shark also known as the great white, white pointer or white death, is a specie of large lamniform shark which can be found in the coastal surface waters of all the major oceans. The great white shark is mainly known for its size, with mature individuals growing up to 6.4 m (21 ft) in length (although reports have been published of great white sharks measuring over 8 m (26 ft) and 3,324 kg (7,328 lb) in weight). This shark reaches its maturity around 15 years of age and was previously believed to have a lifespan of over 30 years. The true lifespan of great white sharks is far longer; now estimated to be as long as 70 years or more, making it one of the longest lived cartilaginous fish currently known. Great white sharks can accelerate to speeds that exceed 56 km/h (35 mph).

The great white shark is arguably the world's largest known extant macropredatory fish, and is one of the primary predators of marine mammals. It is also known to prey upon a variety of other marine animals, including fish and seabirds. But more so, it is ranked first in having the most attacks on humans.
