"Holy c**p, it dove right out of the water", the captain yells.

Incredible footage shows a scientist's dangerously close encounter with a 12-foot great white shark.

The minute-long video, which has gotten almost 80,000 views in the past day, was posted by the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries and the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy. "It came right up and opened its mouth right at my feet", Skomal says in the video.

He said: "Did you see that?" However, the shark leaps out of the water and snaps at his toes, startling him.

Researchers have tagged eight sharks off the Cape so far this season and have been urging beachgoers to be "shark smart" and use the conservancy's free app that provides information on white shark sightings and movements.

Cape Cod has become an important aggregation site for the sharks, allowing viral research opportunities, particularly the fitting of locator tags to track their movements. It happened as Skomal stood on the extended bow of a research vessel.

Video uploaded to YouTube by the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy shows the researcher on a boat earlier this week in waters off the U.S. state of MA.

"While encounters like this one are rare, this video shows that they're certainly possible", said the conservancy's post.
