WATCH: Huge Shark Breaches Water Off Wellfleet

White shark surprise breach off Wellfleet, MA

While out on research trips, we've seen white sharks breach and we've received multiple reports of breaching white sharks this year from fishermen and boaters. While encounters like this one are rare, this video shows that they’re certainly possible. White sharks are wild and unpredictable animals. This is a good reminder of the importance of not becoming complacent and always staying vigilant when in or on the water. Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries Cape Cod National Seashore

The video was taken off the coast of Wellfleet.

"While out on research trips, we've seen white sharks breach and we've received multiple reports of breaching white sharks this year from fishermen and boaters," the group posted on their page. "While encounters like this one are rare, this video shows that they’re certainly possible. White sharks are wild and unpredictable animals.
