People taking a whale watching tour in Orange County got treated to an unexpected treat when they spotted a great white shark.

The sighting was on Friday at 2:30 p.m. about two miles away from the San Clemente Pier.

Dana Wharf Whale Watching Capt. Chris Pica says the young great white was about 8 to 10 feet long. He also said sharks don't normally stick around when boats approach, but this one kept coming back for a closer look.
