VIDEO: Florida fishermen get up close and personal with great white shark

Some Florida fishermen got an up close and personal view that few get to see in person: a great white shark.

Devin DellaCava and his father, Gino, were fishing with friends about 25 miles out of Ponce Inlet when they spotted the shark.

DellaCava of Longwood said they often see sharks out there, but never a great white.

In the video, the large outline of the shark can be seen swimming near their boat and it becomes more clear, before the shark swims away. 

"I was in awe, it is incredible to see such a large and majestic creature in person," said DellaCava.
