Kayaker Has Close Encounter with Great White
ORLEANS, Mass. — A Massachusetts man had a close encounter with a great white shark off the coast of Cape Cod.
Nauset Beach in Orleans was reopened Sunday after being closed shortly Saturday when a shark was seen swimming not far from shore.
There were no reports of shark sightings in nearby Chatham.
Orleans resident Dana Richardson told the Cape Cod Times he saw a shark fin following him Saturday while he was paddle boarding about 200 feet from shore in eight feet of water, then later spotted a fin following a kayaker. The kayaker quickly rowed ashore.
Experts say the sharks are being drawn to Cape Cod waters by an abundance of seals, a favorite meal of the predatory fish.
Swimmers in Chatham have been told to steer clear of seals after sharks were seen in the water there last week.
