Officials believe it was a great white shark that attacked two women who were kayaking off the Massachusetts coast near Plymouth Wednesday.

The women were a good distance form shore when the shark hit the underside of their kayak, tossing both of them into the water.

Neither of the women were injured during the encounter, but the kayak did suffer a substantial bite mark.

A state official responded to the scene and believes the bite could only have been caused by a great white.
