Just as a reference, if that's Race Point, it could be 30-40' deep right there. It drops off like a cliff. I'm guessing it's Race Point (where the current whips around the tip of the Cape).


I don't see these guys in 4-6' of water, but then again, seals come right up to shore, so why not great whites.
Still, surfing is less risky than skydiving apparently, so I think we're all okay.

Jesus that's a big fish. I've seen 2 great whites in my life. Luckily both were from shore. Both were in half moon bay, ca. The dorsal fin is gigantic.

Great Whites will go into shallow depths on occasion, which is reassuring. I'd be more worried about the Tiger or Bull in shallow water.

Couple years back they dredged up a White in the Pamlico Sound in NC.

A few weeks ago, just off Scituate, Ma. I surfaced after an early morning lobster dive and the harbor master's boat came up to us. Thought he wanted to check our catch, licenses, etc., but he just wanted to give us a friendly heads-up. He told us a great white attacked and killed a seal 100 yards from our spot the previous evening. Probably was the same animal that had attacked a woman on a kayak off Duxbury a few days before. Anyway, we motored to our next lobster spot and went back in for another dive. Did not see any sign the fish, fortunately.






The seal population has exploded recently. I am watching two swim by right now as I write this from Ack.

You'd think the seals were a barometer of the fish stocks, but fishing (at least stripers) has been shitty compared to 5 years ago when seal population was thin. I wonder what's up with the increase in seals?


Also, Ken, I'd keep a spear gun at my hip at all times and my head on a swivel when you're diving around here now!

I'm sticking to swimming in fresh water. At least about the only thing that might get me will be the brain eating amoeba.

I used to live in a beach house in Puerto Rico years ago. Went swimming almost every day. Never saw a shark. But I heard them yell "Tiberon" one day. It turned out to be a manatee.

Didn't you guys see shark week? Shallow water is the new black when it comes to great whites. This trend is happening all over the world.

Just checked the shark tracker site . "Betsy" a 12' 7" 1400 pounder is lurking right off the eastern side of Ack. Dang, scallop season starts tomorrow. Oh well, can't let a little thing like a great white get in the way.

Dont kid yourself- Bull sharks are notorious fresh water predators. They found one in Lake Michigan and several up bigger rivers.

Watch the sharks travels here:

We were surfing this spring when Katherine was off shore right where we surfed the day prior....

Very cool website. Checkout the 800 lb tiger just off the coast of Hilton Head today. Or the 2300 lb Great White that was a few hundred yards off the coast of Ocean City (MD) last week.

The seal population was kept under control in the past by having a bounty placed on them. So much $$ per nose. Now, the great whites are pretty much the only thing keeping them in check. At some point the decline in fish stocks will effect them .


I had a beer with the greatest fisherman on the island last week. Fyi, he blames the squid and herring boats for depleting the bait this year, thus driving the stripers away.

Ironically, my ex-girlfriend's name is Betsy.
