A group of friends wakeboarding are attacked and devoured by a two-headed great white shark. Meanwhile, a Semester at Sea ship, called the Sea King, led by Professor Franklin Babish (O'Connell) and his wife, Anne (Electra) hits a dead shark, which becomes lodged in the boat’s propeller and damages the ship's hull, causing the boat to take on water. Soon after, the two-headed shark attacks the boat and breaks the radio antenna, preventing ship co-captain Laura (Thompson) from summoning help. The group then notices a deserted atoll nearby, so Laura drives the Sea King closer, before Professor Babish takes the students over to the atoll on a dinghy, while Anne remains on the Sea King with Laura and the ship's crew, Han (Webb) and Dikilla (Valentin).
As Professor Babish and the students explore the atoll, Laura enters the water to repair the ship's hull, but is quickly ripped apart by the shark. Meanwhile, professor and the students assemble in an abandoned fishing village and set out to search the atoll for scrap metal to help repair the boat. Kate (Hogan) tells Kirsten (Nobili) she is afraid of water. Haley (Jackson) and Alison (English) decide to go swimming topless with Kirk (Conner), only to be attacked and eaten by the two-headed shark. The rest of the group meet up and find two small speedboats before an apparent earthquake hits, causing Professor Babish to fall and badly injure his leg. Dana (Bach) takes off her shirt and wraps the injured leg around while Jeff (Carmouze) and Mike (King Leslie) take Professor Babish back to the Sea King on the dinghy. Anne tends to her husband there while Jeff and Mike head back to the atoll, and discover Laura's severed hand in the water before the two-headed shark bites off Jeff's right arm. They attempt to swim back to the Sea King, but both are ultimately eaten.
Kate and Paul (Gallegos) manage to fix the two boats they found, while Cole (Ward) finds a gasoline tank to fuel them. He then jumps in one of the boats with Ryan (Charles), Jamie (Vera) and Alex (James) and drives away, prompting Kate, Paul, and Dana to follow in the other boat. The two boats race each other, unaware of Professor Babish's and Anne's warnings about the shark. The shark attacks Cole's boat, causing Ryan to fall into the water, where he is devoured, alerting the other students to the shark's presence. Paul realizes the shark is drawn to Cole's boat as it has a bigger engine. Cole also realizes this and jumps off the boat, leaving Jamie and Alex to be eaten. When the survivors reach shore, Kate furiously confronts Cole for letting Jamie, Ryan and Alex die. A few minutes later, Anne, Professor Babish, and the crew arrive at the island, abandoning the Sea King.
Shortly afterward, another earthquake hits and the group begins to suspect that the supposed earthquakes are actually the atoll collapsing in on itself from the underground. Now that it is more urgent to escape, the group decides to hook up a generator to metal poles and place them in the water to distract the shark with electricity while Kate and Cole travel to the Sea King and repair the hull. The plan works until the shark attacks the poles, knocking Han and Dikilla into the water where they are eaten, and then swims to the Sea King. Kate fixes the ship, only for Cole to drive away without her, forcing her to swim back to the atoll. The two-headed shark attacks the Sea King, causing it to sink and send out a distress signal, and eats Cole while he attempts to escape on a lifeboat, as his cell phone's ringing attracted the shark's attention. As the group panics, the atoll begins to rapidly sink, prompting everyone to flee for their lives, but Kristen (Bissing) and Dana become separated from the group and are devoured when they venture onto a dock. At the same time, Professor Babish and Anne spot a small tsunami coming and are eaten as well after they realize that they cannot escape. The tsunami hits and the atoll sinks, leaving the survivors with very little land. They take shelter in the still standing village chapel, but the two-headed shark breaks in and eats Lyndsey (Stewart), Michelle (Taliaferro), Liza (Young), and Ethan (Dicarluccio).
Kate, Paul, and Kirsten escape the chapel, discovering the gasoline tank, and lure the two-headed shark towards it. Kate attempts to stab the two-headed shark, but Kirsten takes the tank, attracts the shark's attention, and attempts to blow it up with her lighter as it begins chewing her up, but only one of the shark's heads get blown off. Kate and Paul find one of the boats, and turn it on and jump off, before taking shelter on part of the remaining atoll. The shark attacks the boat, which is moving without a driver, and bites the motor, causing it to explode, finally killing the shark (similar to the shark death in Jaws). A helicopter then comes to save Kate and Paul – the only survivors of a group of 23 people.

The design for the 2-headed shark was detailed in the Monster Man episode "Seeing Double." The original design of the shark had one shark head stacked on top of the other. However, creature designer Cleve Hall pushed to change the design to side-by-side heads.
