After Monday's attack, a local politician asked the Queensland state government to install permanent drum lines around Cid Harbour, like hundreds of other places along the eastern coast line.

The 33-year-old worked as a urologist at Melbourne's Austin Health and died from the attack by an unknown species of shark at dusk on Monday.

A man is in a critical condition after he was attacked by a shark at the Whitsunday Islands off Cid Harbour, where two tourists were mauled in separate attacks within 24 hours in September.

"During this holiday period, we urge people to exercise caution, stay out of the water and not throw food scraps overboard from boats", the department said.

"The man and woman who was onboard have gone into the water in the late afternoon and they were taking turns at using a stand-up paddleboard".

There were more than a dozen yachts around at the time and French-speaking tourists rushed to the man's rescue on a dingy.

"I've been in the Whitsunday area on and off for 30 years, and apart from some minor nips and bites, we've never heard of any substantial attacks such as what we've seen in these three attacks", he said on Tuesday.

Most of the victim's company were people with medical background, including two doctors, who brought him back to his yacht to seek help.

The victim was taken by helicopter to the Mackay Base Hospital, 100km to the south, where he died.

A tourist has died after he was mauled by a shark near an idyllic beach, only weeks after two other tourists were attacked in the exact same spot.

Ben McCauley, the emergency helicopter crew member, described the incident as "absolutely horrific".

Whitsunday Tourism told the ABC they asked operators in the region to alert them of cancellations or negative feedback they received as a result of the spate of shark attacks.

The latest attack comes after a woman and young girl were both bitten by sharks while swimming in waters in Cid Harbour two months ago.

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

The pre-teen lost her leg in the attack, which led to a shark bait operation, in which six sharks were hooked and killed within a week. Critics argued that killing sharks was not the answer.
