CAPE COD, Mass. — Resembling a scene from a Hollywood movie, a couple of fishermen in Massachusetts got an amazing up close look at a great white shark this week.

The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy tweeted a video Tuesday recorded by commercial fisherman Matty Riley that shows the encounter, which occurred in Cape Cod Bay.

The organization said Riley and a friend where looking for lobsters when the curious great white shark approached their vessel.

"He's coming right up to the boat!" one man is heard on the video.

The huge shark and vessel were both near a dead humpback whale, according to the tweet.
