A Great White Shark Was Spotted Off The Coast Of Maine And Here’s What You Need To Know

There’s nothing we love more than heading to the beach on a warm summer day. When the sun is shining and the heat index is high, a trip to the coast is one of the easiest ways to cool down. Plus, who can resist it when we’ve got more than 3,000 miles of it. For the most part, we don’t have to worry about much more than some super cold water when we visit. Or maybe a rip current here and there. Until now. A great white shark was recently spotted off the coast and it has us wondering when we’ll be ready to go back in the water.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
