Great White? In Hawaiian waters? Those waters are kinda "warm" for Whites, aren't they?
The big predatory shark in Hawaiian waters is the Tiger. 'Course Tigers "check things out" by biting first and asking questions later. So maybe it was a GW...

Yeah, Hawaii gets Great Whites. Its rare these days but they do get them.
Not long ago a diver was free diving with one and it got a lot of news coverage.
I saw a 15 foot Tiger on the surface while returning from a snorkeling trip to Lanai in 2000. We were on a large Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat about half way between Lanai and Lahaina.
Our snorkeling group of about 20 people had only been out of the water for about 15 minutes when we saw it.
It was one of the highlights of the trip!
