Face to face with white pointer shark

Date: 1/2/2008

Australian freediver and spearfisherman Rob Wills came face to face with a very large white pointer (4.5m plus) off Auckland’s front door step while diving at Horn Rock in the outer Hauraki Gulf on the east coast of the New Zealand’s North Island on 28 December 2007. Bob commented, ‘The damn thing took up my whole field of vision with less than two metres separating us, I was totally stunned’. Bob had a video camera and shot some footage before the shark slowly swam off. So he has the evidence!
