Great white spotted in Morro Bay Harbor, video

September 10, 2016


The captain of Morro Bay Boat Charters took a  video of an 18 foot to 20 foot great white shark about a mile from the south jetty at the Morro Bay Harbor on Thursday.

While boating, Micheal Brink spotted a dead pacific common dolphin and went to investigate. The dolphin’s remains did not clearly show a cause of death, so Brink placed his GoPro camera in the water.

Shortly after the camera went into the water, a great white shark appeared and rubbed up against Blank’s 28 foot Zodiac RIB Vessel. Blank estimated the shark to be between 10 feet to 20 feet long.

    Great Whites will flee when Orcas are around. What did the CDFW do with the Orcas?

    That would be in Estero Bay, not Morro Bay Harbor

    If Adam Hill fell in the ocean with that shark, why wouldn’t it attack him?

    Professional courtesy.

    Wonder how long it will take CDFW to issue a fine?

      There are already too many sharks IN Morro Bay…namely the Mayor and city council.

        Oh snap! I see what you did there…sharks in the water, sharks in the government. Wow, you don’t find that kind of wit just anywhere!

    Howzabout “near” Morro Bay Harbor, not “in” Morro Bay Harbor? There’s a significant difference between 1 mile outside the Jetty and “in” the harborear!

    Just sayin’…

    If you are a mile south of the south jetty you are not IN Morro Bay Harbor. The Great White was not IN the harbor.
