Well, Was There Anyone In The Shark Cage?

Why yes, there was. A great white shark breaches a shark diving safety cage (really) and violently thrashes with a diver inside. See the diver emerge at about the one minute mark of the video.

The video was shot near Guadalupe Island, off the coast of Baja California during a five-day shark cruise.

The ocean water was chummed with tuna chunks so that a diver could hopefully be safely protected while watching the action from within the enclosure.

One of the great white sharks came in for the tuna, but it was so excited it broke the cage bars and ventured inside.

“So this shark lunged at the bait, accidentally hit the side of the cage, was most likely confused and not able to swim backwards, it thrust forward and broke the metal rail of the cage,” according to the description on the YouTube channel.

“There was a single diver inside the cage. He ended up outside the bottom of the cage, looking down on two great white sharks. The diver is a very experienced dive instructor, remained calm, and when the shark thrashed back outside the cage, the diver calmly swam back up and climbed out completely uninjured,” according to the caption on the YouTube channel.

“Everyone on the boat returned to the cages the next day, realizing this was a very rare event. The boat owner, captain, and crew are to be commended for making what could’ve been a tragic event into a happy ending. I’m sure God and luck had a bit to do with it too!”

After one minute, the diver gets out of the cage.
