These types of sharks often lurk in water shallower than 15 feet, the outlet explained.

In a tweet responding to the shark sighting video, the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy encourages Beachgoers to report their shark sightings.

“As the summer season approaches, remember to report your great white shark sightings to the Sharktivity app!” wrote the nonprofit scientific research.

The conservancy also offered some “smart shark tips” for anyone wading in Cape Cod’s waters.

According to the nonprofit, it’s important to remember that sharks swim through shallow waters when searching for food.

People are advised to stay close to shore so they can be easily rescued.

Experts also recommend avoiding areas with seals or schools of fish and skipping spots with murky water.

They also recommend keeping splashing to a minimum.

And when in doubt, keep an eye on the beach signs and flag warnings and listen to the lifeguards for instructions.

If you see a shark and there is no lifeguard around, call 911.
