Cid Harbour in the Whitsundays

Cid Harbour, located in north Queensland's idealic tourism hotspot the Whitsunday Islands, has recently become notorious for shark attacks following the mauling of two people in September this year.

A man has died after being attacked by a shark while paddle boarding and swimming near the Whitsunday Islands in northeast Australia.

Fisheries Queensland issued a statement at the time of the attacks, warning people that Cid Harbour's waters "are not safe for swimming".

Patrol Inspector Steve O'Connell said the group gave first aid to the victim after he was pulled onto the 12-metre vessel.

The location - Cid Harbour in the Whitsunday Islands - was also the scene of two non-fatal shark attacks in September.

Tourism Whitsundays CEO Natassia Wheeler said they supported all efforts to inform visitors about the dangers of sharks in the area.

"The majority of people from last time [in September] were very much against the drum lines".

A male patient is now being airlifted to Mackay Hospital with significant leg and wrist injuries following a shark attack in waters near #CidHarbour which occurred at 5.37pm.

"The woman has gotten out of the water off the standing paddleboard and the man has gone into the water, shortly thereafter he was the victim of an attack by the shark".

The last shark attack in the Whitsunday Islands before the latest spate occurred on February 13, 2010, off Dent Island where 60-year-old tourist Patricia Trumbull survived lacerations to her buttocks and major blood loss.

Daniel Gschwind, chief executive of the Queensland Tourism Industry Council, which represents more than 3,000 tourism businesses, said on Tuesday that authorities were examining why the unprecedented series of attacks had occurred and whether environmental changes were a factor.

"We need to now have the scientific background and investigation of what is causing this sudden spike of attacks and interactions with sharks".

"I feel devastated for the family and friends of this young man, I know that he would have received the best of care available from the Queensland Health Service, including RACQ CQ Rescue helicopter crew and my heart goes out to all involved", Craig Barwick said in a statement.
