ABOVE VIDEO: A huge 13-foot hammerhead shark stalked two kayakers for two miles off the coast of Palm Beach, Florida, and was captured on a Go-Pro underwater camera.

“It’s not really a huge thing to see sharks,” kayaker Mark Naumovitz, of Port St. Lucie, said, recalling his encounter at sea. “But when you have a dorsal fin trailing you like its Jaws, it’s a different story.”

The shark occasionally brushed against the kayakers identified by the Sun Sentinel as Mark Naumovitz and Brian Nelli. Both men are from the Pushin’ Water Fishing Charter, a local kayak fishing charter company.

“It freaked me out a little,” Brian Nelli, of Palm Beach Gardens, told the Sun Sentinel.

They were in the shallow waters when the shark approached their kayaks and then stalked the men, who figured the shark trailed them because of their fresh catch of a 16-pound Mahi.

They dropped a camera underwater to film the shark during the close encounter.

“He may have picked up scent and followed us,” Naumovitz told the Sun Sentinel. “It’s not really a huge thing to see sharks. But when you have a dorsal fin trailing you like it’s Jaws, it’s a different story.”
