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.
