Life at sea holds many surprises, but the thought of looking at a shark on full deck out of nowhere seems like something out of a fantasy story, but it happened off the coast of Whitianga in New Zealand.

According to the crew members, a group of fishermen was looking for their harvest, when apparently a huge mako shark took the bait and jumped out.

Ryan Churches, the owner of the boat, said that after being hooked, the shark jumped out of the water as a kind of “aerial display”, which left everyone open-mouthed.

The surprising moment was captured on video and shared on social networksshowing the large sea creature crash-landing on the bow of the boat before spinning around and slamming its tail against the windshield.

According to local media, “the shark managed to slip away” unharmed and slid safely into the water.

An average adult mako is around 8.2 to 10.5 feet long and can average between 300 and 500 pounds.

Mako sharks live near the ocean surface and in coastal waters, and are found around the New Zealand coast, most commonly in the North Island.

They are known to jump out of the water when hooked, sometimes up to 9 feet, and have been reported landing on boats.

This species is one of the best known sharks. Its appearance is that of an aggressive shark, with large black eyes and a jaw full of large conical and pointed teeth that protrude from the snout.

It belongs to the same family as the great white shark, which is obvious, since it looks like one, but smaller.
