Cape Cod National Seashore is home to a diversity of wildlife, including sharks. Sharks are a part of a healthy, wild, marine ecosystem. Follow these SharkSmart tips:

1. Be aware. Sharks hunt seals and fish in shallow waters. Avoid areas where seals and schools of fish are present. Avoid murky or low-visibility water.

2. Swim, paddle, kayak, and surf in groups. Don’t isolate yourself.

3. Stay close to shore where rescuers can reach you.

4. Follow all signage, flag warnings, and lifeguard instructions.
