    Or Stewart Island either…

    • Yeah, right, whatever…

      Indeed. Not to mention Rakiura

      • Unicorn

        This site is so quick to ridicule MSM for typos in headlines…kinda seems ignorant not to know how to spell the name of the country’s third largest island…

        • Cadwallader

          Are yes, but most people don’t know how to spell “Feilding.”

          • Unicorn

            Most people probably don’t need to know…

          • Blue Tim

            Or Hanmer

          • Yeah, right, whatever…

            Ummmm, “Hanmer” maybe?

          • Cadwallader

            or Ashhurst

          • Yeah, right, whatever…

            “Feilding” There you go…

        • Nige.

          This fine site run by a handful of volunteers? I have 4 words for you: Per, spec, tive.

          • Yeah, right, whatever…

            OK, and the 4th word is?

          • Unicorn

            Ahh…so if you were paid, you’d know how to spell Rakiura/Stewart Island..interesting perspective…the ability to spell correctly relies on whether you’re compensated or not…

          • Unicorn

            Or is it that if you had TWO handfuls of volunteers you’d know how to spell Stewart Island…hmmmm…perspective…

    Can I just clarify that the spelling is Stewart Island. Unless they have another shark operation somewhere else.

  • Huia

    Seems to me it is the height of stupidity to feed great whites from boats, therefore they will be come accustomed to approaching boats and humans for food. There is no way in hell I would go diving down in that area now that is happening.
    The paua divers down there put their lives on the line diving in a known shark area anyway, but this takes it to a new level. So very dangerous when 10 to 12 foot dingys are the normal fishing vessel for a lot of kiwi’s around nz. A hungry great white accustomed to being around boats and picking up tidbits from humans could potentially do a lot of damage to a small craft elsewhere as the whites move around, they don’t just stay in Stuart/Stewart Island.

      The shark dive operators don’t feed the sharks they put out seal shaped decoys made from carpet and foam. I have dived with the operators involved.

      • El Jorge

        Correction, they don’t feed the sharks when people are watching…………..

      • Huia

        After the tour operators left you didn’t chance going back in your black wetsuit and doing some diving did you? you know, just for the paua?

  • Yeah, right, whatever…

    I appears the attack as seen on the video took place off the coast of Mossel Bay in South Africa. Not sure how Stuart/Stewart Island became involved?

    • Hard1

      Great White Sharks love to travel, Bro.

  • intelligentes candida diva

    Video is from South Africa, however I get the title because research continues down south and GWSs are being tagged as population grows between Rakiura andTiti Islands (Stewart Island and Muttonbird Islands) and Im contemplating going to Stewart Island for a tramp/hike/walk, yup the idea of crossing Foveaux Strait with those creatures below does not please me!!!

    • Mountie

      While you are there go for a dive in the shark cage and see them up close. Brilliant

      • intelligentes candida diva

        NO WAY, not me, have you done it down there?

        • Mountie

          One of the great experience in my life!
          Until you see a 5 meter Great White up close enough to reach out and if you where aloud to touch it, you don’t realise what a magnificent creature they are. It is real easy to do an no danger at all. Strong cage.

          • intelligentes candida diva

            You make it sound appealing, yet its still a no for me.

            I do find sharks terrifying, however I admire their magnificence and do appreciate the special aspect of seeing large creatures in their natural wild habitat.

            Im a terra firma girl, I have been kayaking to see Grizzly Bears and would do that again in a second
