First day in the air over the OCEARCH vessel. They are just offshore of Shark Cove in Cape Cod. As we approached the boat a massive chum slick could be seen trailing behind and drifting toward shore.
On shore was a large gathering of gray seals that we circled for several minutes. Suddenly the pilot and I spotted two white sharks swimming only yards from where the seals played in the surf. The pilot estimated the sharks to be of at least 15 feet in length. After a time the sharks moved away from shore and straight toward the chum slick.
Upon landing, we checked the OCEARCH site to find out that the sharks did investigate the chum slick, but did not stick around.
