Shark sighting a tourist draw on Cape

In 24 years of running the clam shack at Nauset Beach on Massachusetts’ Cape Cod, owner John Ohman said he has never seen a shark.

But after a lifeguard at Nauset Beach spotted a dorsal fin about 150 yards offshore Sunday morning, forcing the closure of the beach, sharks seem to be on the minds of local residents and tourists alike.

“There is a great curiosity that you might be able to see a great beast of the deep,” Ohman said. “Nauset Beach has a majesty that includes sealife, and great white sharks are part of that 2013 culture.”
