WATCH: Mako shark jumps onto midcoast fishing boat off New England island

Sea Ventures Charters were fishing off Monhegan Island in late August when a mako shark dropped in.

MONHEGAN, Maine — The crew and guests of the charter fishing boat Lady Anne caught and released two blue sharks one day late last month when they hooked another shark ... and realized it was a mako.

As they watched the shark's "acrobatics" from the boat, the 7-foot-long shark suddenly leaped onto the deck of the Lady Anne.

Neither the shark nor any people were injured as they measured and tagged the mako and it headed back into the sea, according to Chris Kingsbury, who sent the video to NEWS CENTER Maine. 

The "once in a lifetime experience," though, is here to stay.
