Over the weekend, Walter Szulc Jr. went kayaking off a Cape Cod beach. That's a great white shark (or perhaps a basking shark) behind him. Eventually, Szulc says he "saw the fin out of the water … I looked down and saw the body and realized that part of the shark was underneath me, and I just proceeded to paddle… paddle and head out of there."

UPDATE: The shark may have been a basking shark, not a great white. (CBS)
