We thought it was safe.

IT LOOKS like a scene from a Hollywood blockbuster.

But this monster of the deep is a real-life Jaws.

The great white shark left frightened tourists quaking when he bared his razor- sharp teeth in waters named Dangerous Reef.

They laughed and took pictures as the shark fed on tuna bait.

But seconds later they fled in terror as it lunged at their boat and tried to have them for afters.

The shark is affectionately known as UFO by tour boat operators.

They promised to provide an "unforgettable" date with the deadly creature in the waters off Port Lincoln in South Australia.

And they more than lived up to their promise when they sailed into the shark's hunting ground.

It's where they also lay on close encounters of the underwater kind in steel cages to give thrill- seekers the experience of a lifetime.

But this time everyone was more than happy to keep their heads above water.

And after one look at those gnashers, they were in no doubt why he's called the great white shark.
