While sailing outside of Newport Harbor Calif We spotted this shark next to our boat. It kind of looks like a baby White Shark but I am no expert. It was about 300 yards from shore near the edge of the kelp.
Based on the elongated fin and lack of an obvious tail, your photo looks like a Mola Mola (Ocean Sunfish) - a very cool fish to see!- more than a shark. Unless you saw more of the fish than what's in the photo.

Visualize the vastness of the oceans; the infinity of the heavens; the fickleness of the wind; the artistry of the craft and the frailty of the sailor. The oneness that may be achieved through the harmony of these things may lead one to enlightenment. - Flying Welshman
