When adventure tour operator Rainer Schimpf took a boat of tourists out into Mossel Bay, South Africa, they found themselves at the mercy of a shark that began attacking their inflatable boat. Suddenly, the group felt their safety thrown into jeopardy. And being so close to the predator made them question whether they would return to dry land unscathed.
Schimpf is a renowned tour leader and cameraman from South Africa. One day in 2016, he took a tour group out to view the wildlife in Mossel Bay, and they came a bit closer to a shark than they’d planned for. Consequently, MaxAnimal, a YouTube channel specializing in animal videos, shared incredible footage of the “legendary” Schimpf’s adventure.
