Locals spoken to by Stuff understood the man was diving near the Cavalli Islands when he was attacked by a mako shark.

It is the second shark attack in Northland in the last three months.

In October, Andrew "Nugget" Brough, 25, was attacked by a shark at Baylys Beach near Dargaville.

The great white shark's bite punctured his forearm and his hand. He said the puncture wound to his hand was so big, he could fit his finger in it.
