What started off as a nice fishing trip among friends turned into a potential Hollywood horor film when they came upon a massive 20-foot-long great white shark. (We would have dropped dead).
According to boat captain Jeff Lynch, the sea monster circled his boat a couple of times, long enough for him to catch a couple of photos, before it disappeared into the deep.
Mr Lynch said: "To see something that big was crazy. It was as big as my boat."
Before seeing the shark, Mr Lynch had already contacted the Coast Guard because he had seen a dead whale floating off the coast. Shortly after that he noticed the 20ft-long shark 'bumping and nudging' the whale carcass.
Will Farrissey, who was on Mr Lynch's boat when the shark was spotted, told the Boston Herald:
"We waited for it to eat the whale, but it kept circling, nudging and bumping the whale. The girth on it was impressive."
The 1975 film Jaws, was set in the fictional town of Amity Island but was mostly shot in Martha's Vineyard.
If this shark comes back we're blaming Spielberg!
