Sunday was a busy day for sharks off the coast of Nauset beach. Nauset beach is in Orleans down on Cape Cod and the shark sightings were actually spread over a few miles. Now the sightings weren’t enough to close the any of the beaches down as they were far enough off shore BUT expect some more because we haven’t even hit peak shark season yet. Typically peak shark season is from August through October.
