Dillon May, who recorded this video, said he thought the activity he and his girlfriend, Kaitlyn Dix, saw in the water was a “tuna boil,” or an area where tuna are feeding in a manner that makes the water look as if it is boiling.

“Then we saw it was sharks on a bait pod, never seen anything like it,” May said. “No shrimp boats were in sight either!”

May told Storyful that the sharks were in such a frenzy they were bringing water onto the vessel.

The couple was about 15 miles off the coast of Venice, Louisiana, when they saw a large pod of fish.

“By the time we got there, the sharks had found the pod and pushed them up against the boat to feast on them.”
