A giant great white shark attacked a film crew’s boat after they tried to attach a camera to one of the predator’s fins.

The Discovery Channel camera crew was on location off Stewart Island in New Zealand when a giant shark broke out of the water and tried to dig its razor-sharp teeth into their dinghy.

Before the attack, the film crew tried to attach a camera to one of the animal’s flippers in hopes of seeing the tip predator’s feeding ground.

In a matter of moments, the savage creature was shooting toward the ship, falling out of the water, and bit into a rope that was tying it to a larger ship.

The speaker warns of the dangers if the crew is separated from the main ship.

The shark bit the line three times before diving back into the sea.

Then it whips away between the pines with the cord and pulls the threadbare boat behind it. The shark looks like it’s swimming away, but then returns.

A member of the crew, Andy Casagrande, starts explaining what just happened.

But meanwhile you can hear someone scream: “Andy! Andy! Andy!”

The man then points to a shark circling the boat, sliding underneath and attacking a nearby buoy.

This time the aggressive white man is accompanied by another shark and both began to crash into the boat.

A voice questions the decision of the film team to record so close to the feeding place.

“I don’t think that’s such a brilliant idea, you know,” says a voice. “I don’t think we can have a boat there.

Fortunately, the sharks were bored and the camera crew escaped unharmed.

Shark activists believe the fish thought the crew had food to give them.

Experts say that cage diving makes the creatures safer near boats. ABC News reports.

Last week, sun-seekers were banned from swimming at several Spanish holiday beaches popular with the British after a shark sighting.

A police diver discovered the predator near the coast in front of the Playa Del Portet beach in Teulada on the Costa Blanca during a routine dive, during which the police issued a warning to the town hall chiefs.

The ban passed on Saturday affects beaches in the municipality between Valencia and Alicante, which includes the small coastal town of Moraira.

A spokesman for the local authority confirmed that a civil Guard diver had sounded the alarm and that “the red flag will be displayed on all beaches” until further notice.

“The Guardia Civil and the National Police are investigating what type of shark it is and how dangerous it is,” they continued.
