Every Year, This Charming Massachusetts Town Is Invaded By Great White Sharks And It’s Terrifying

There are few things more unnerving than feeling something cold brush against your leg as you’re wading into the sea. While the source of the sensation normally ends up being seaweed or a small fish, in this small Cape Cod town, it might be something else.

Chatham, Massachusetts is the only place on the east coast where you’ll find a large summer population of great white sharks, and experts say it’s only a matter of time before there’s blood in the water.

If you do decide to take a dip in Chatham, you’ll likely be just fine. There are posted warnings and informational signs on the beach about the shark presence and the beaches are still popular. However, it’s best to stay alert and keep away from any seal groups. There’s definitely something in the water.
