MA state biologist Greg Skomal was standing on the pulpit of the research boat last week when the shark made the leap, according to the Boston Globe.

Yet the sight of a 2,000lb great white shark breaching remains one of the holy grails of both scientific and nature watching.

As the top shark expert in Massachusetts, Greg Skomal is used to up-close-and-personal experiences with great whites.

The conservancy said scientists received multiple reports of breaching white sharks from fishermen and boaters - but encounters are rare.

"While encounters like this one are rare, this video shows that they're certainly possible", wrote the conservancy while sharing the terrifying video. "Did you see that?" he says as he immediately returns to looking for the shark. "White sharks are wild and unpredictable animals", they said, warning everyone to stay vigilant while in water.
