The incredible video below shows the real-life Jaws moment a majestic great white shark leaps out of the sea and bares its teeth at a boat:

The terrifying footage shows the massive predator emerging from the water and bearing menacingly towards the boat - just like in Spielberg's classic 1975 film.

It was filmed back in 2017 in Gansbaai, South Africa, which is known as the white shark capital of the world.

Cameraman Anthony Kobrowisky captured the shark on film aboard a great white shark diving boat.

Anthony says he has had many encounters with the stunning creatures - but this one stands out above the rest.

Footage shows the shark swimming close to Anthony's camera and the cage of divers - snapping at bait and breaching the water's surface.

South African Anthony, 35, who now lives in Olso, Norway, said: "I worked as the cameraman on a white shark diving boat for three years.

"I would have a camera strapped to a long pole.

"When I could see the shark, I would wait for the shark to approach a long line with a tuna head attached to the end.

"The bait handler holding the line would shout down, which instructed the divers that were in a cage to drop under the water to hopefully catch a glimpse of the shark as it passed.

"I would cautiously follow the shark as it passed with the camera using my pole.

"The white sharks are generally very quick so you had to be ready all the time otherwise they would surprise you and be on the bait before I could get a video shot of the shark.

"My favourite aspect was that you never knew what you would see on the day. Every day was different.

"Sometimes there were no white sharks, sometimes you would see a white shark predate naturally on a seal and sometimes you would have six or seven different white sharks on a trip.

"Even though white sharks look incredibly dangerous, they are a lot more than that.

"They are an Apex Predator and are an essential part to the ocean's eco-system."

Anthony's footage is used by his photography company Sea Candy Media to raise the public profile of sharks.

He said: "We need all sharks in our ocean and sadly many of these species are critically endangered. It is said that over 100 million sharks are killed yearly. This is primarily due to the shark fin industry and shark fin soup.

"The amount of sharks killed is not sustainable and will have a negative impact on all of our lives.

"The ripple effect will be felt by everyone when these sharks disappear.

"If there was one thing that everyone should be aware of is that we need to protect sharks. They need our protection."
