AYes, Massachusetts man had a close encounter with a great white shark off the coast of Cape Cod.

Nauset Beach in Orleans reopened Sunday after being closed briefly Saturday when a shark was seen swimming not far from shore.

Orleans resident Dana Richardson tells 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, and then later spotted a fin following a kayaker. The kayaker quickly rowed ashore.

Experts say the sharks are being drawn to Cape Cod's 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.

    Jaws is one of the apex preditors of the ocean.

    Don't dangle your feet in his territory or you can expect them to be nipped off.

    It's safe as long as you have "a bigger boat"

    I wouldn't go in the water while the seals are present. I don't want to be shark bait.

    It's not safe anymore, but people just have to watch their backs, and everything else on them too!!! That would be my luck running into a shark. It seems like the attacks are getting worse and worse.
