A great white shark was seen less than ten feet from the shore in Cape Cod days before a mother swimming with her baby narrowly escaped.

Sharks were spotted in Cape Cod once on Monday and twice on Tuesday as the charity warned of great whites hunting near shore.

Tamzen McKenzie and her friends saw the shark swim “less than ten feet from shore” on Sunday.
She said she saw the seals in the area stay out of the water as the shark approached.
She wrote on social media: ‘He swam back and forth for us for about 10 minutes, quite amazing.’
There were no lifeguards in the area where the shark was spotted and she had no cell phone service.

It comes after the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy released shocking footage of a shark swimming inches from a boat in the area.
In the video shared on Friday, the huge shark slowly swims past the boat as a passenger shouts, “Oh my god.”
His left fin nearly hits the hull of the boat as it glides ominously through the water.
A passenger lets out a nervous laugh as another woman says, “Oh my god,” before the shark begins to swim away.

The charity is warning people that great whites are known to hunt and feed in shallow waters, and they will continue to have a presence on many Cape Cod beaches for the next several weeks.
It said, “This is a good example and a reminder of how close to shore white sharks can get.
As the fall season approaches, we want to remind everyone that white sharks still lie off the coast of Cape Cod.
Based on tag data, the peak activity of white sharks is in August, September and October. Remember to be smart shark. ‘
