    I really doubt that this is a great white shark. Instead, as I can tell from the posterior of the dorsal fin and the shape of the snout, this is a basking shark (Cetorhinus maximus).

      Definitely this is a Carcharodon carcharias not a Cetorhinus maximus. If you watch carefully the video, around 0:12 – 0:16, you can see the white belly of the animal, also the sharp-pointed dorsal fin and the stocky body are typical of white shark. Moreover, this animal hasn’t the long gill slits distinctive of the basking shark. For a comparison you can watch this italian video of a basking shark wrongly identified for a white shark:
