A Tasmanian father and son have captured the moment a shark — believed to be a great white — collided with their boat and came out of the water on camera.

The shark collided with Sean Vinar and son James Vinar's boat off the state's north coast on Wednesday.

The pair had set out early from Low Head towards Beechford, but with good weather and calm water on their side, they decided to venture about 10 kilometres from the coast to explore Barrenjoey Island, or Tenth Island — a known seal colony.

  Coronavirus border closures relaxed for SA, WA, NT travellers, Tasmanian Premier says Tasmania will open its borders to travellers from South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory from August 7, Premier Peter Gutwein announces, warning that he "can't see Victoria being opened up to Tasmania any time in the near future"."In terms of relaxing border restrictions with the other states, unfortunately, due to the situation in Victoria, we will need to take a longer-term view … and I can't see Victoria being opened up to Tasmania any time in the near future," he said.

The shark swam away when the boy' s father jumped into the water, but the child suffered lacerations across his body, Ambulance Tasmania said "The boy, from the North -West, was aboard a six-metre vessel on a fishing expedition about five kilometres from shore with his father and two other men

"We'd never been to the island before and we thought we'll go and have a look and film some seals, have a bit of a look then continue on and do some bottom fishing for flathead," Sean said.

Sean, who has been fishing in Tasmanian seas for about 20 years, circled their 5.7 metre fishing boat around the island before turning back when they noticed seals coming towards them.

"We thought 'oh, this is nice' so we slow down and my son started to do some filming from his phone," he said.

"All of a sudden, we just had this mighty thump on the side of the boat, water flying through the air.

"In a bit of shock, I've looked up towards the front of the boat and there I can see a massive big, great white shark has come out of the water and opened its mouth and latched on to the front of boat where the anchor is.

The shark that ripped a boy from a fishing boat in north west Tasmania has been identified as a great white measuring more than three-and-a-half metres. Lucas Arnott, 10, is recovering after the attack about five kilometres off the coast of Stanley on July 17. He was standing on the side of the boat

This simple horror film takes the age-old fear of the sea serpent, modernizes it , and takes it to new heights. It starts with an unlikely heroine, nerdy graduate student Siobhan, who loves studying oceanography in virtual forms, and has to be pushed to get on a boat and examine it in real life.

"It's completely engulfed the anchor we've got on the front of the boat."

Sean was concerned about the damage the shark could do to the boat and said he started to accelerate slowly.

It was then that the shark put on a show, captured by James Vinar.

"The shark's let go, gone under the boat, hit the back of the boat and then done a massive tail flip right next to the back of the boat," Sean said.

"I thought at that stage that he was trying to get into the back of the boat so I called out to James 'hold on!' and I've just floored it and got out of there.

"And to top it all off, we didn't feel like fishing after that."

It was one of the few times James had been out fishing with his dad.

"I was along for the ride and I got a ride," James said.

"We were in the wrong place at the wrong time," Sean said of the encounter.

"That's a sharks domain, around a seal colony, but we just were not expecting that reaction," he said.

Pic: Hazel Lewis The shark was stranded alive in shallow waters at Filey beach on Thursday evening and lifeboat crews and rescue specialists tried to help guide it back into deeper water.Rescuers from British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) said a large crowd of people had gathered to try to assist the creature when its medics arrived, following a call at about 6pm suggesting a shark was in difficulty.

A pair of fishermen have filmed their heart-stopping encounter with a bullshark in Sydney Harbour - providing a terrifying insight into just how powerful the creatures are.

The Journalist reveals that it was HE who was able to get the montangnards to break off their attack on the boat in the previous scene. A scene where the journalist meets Willard to tell him that he thinks Kurtz is about to kill him because he took his picture again.

Their encounter comes less than two weeks after a 10-year-old boy was dragged into the water by a shark off the coast of Stanley in the Tasmania's north-west.

Seal colonies easy targets for sharks

Shark researcher Chris Black said he had no doubt it was a great white shark captured in James's footage.

"You can tell by the shape of the tail, it's what they call a lunate tail," Mr Black said.

"It's the top fin of the tail and the lower fin of the tail are almost equal so it's a good crescent shape.

"Certainly the colouration and markings of the footage also definitely say to me a white shark, very white on the bottom and a very dark, slate grey on top with a very clear demarcation between the two colours."

Sean and James estimated the shark was about 3.5 to 4 metres long.

"From what I could see of the boat and the shark's tail in the same shot, I would say they're definitely within the ballpark on that measure," Mr Black said.

Mr Black said the winter months were a peak time for white sharks to be in Tasmanian waters.

"These will be larger white sharks over 3 meters because those size white sharks prey on marine mammals — fur seals being a prime example."

He said seal colonies were easy targets for white sharks because they know young seal pups take to the water for the first time in the winter months.

"They [white sharks] are just looking for an easy feed, which those young inexperienced pups certainly represent to them."

Not afraid to get back on the water

Although his boat's front mounting anchor will need to be repaired, Sean said the experienced would not deter him from getting back out on the water.

However, he said he would avoid the area near Barrenjoey Island.

"Once we get the boat checked out and it's all okay, bring on the summer from some fishing," Sean said.

James is more hesitant.

"It's probably going to be a little while before I get back on the boat," he said.
