More And More Sharks Are Being Spotted Around Maine And Here’s What You Should Know

Maine’s got the longest coastline America and that means lots of places to swim, fish, splash and have fun. With so much of the year spent wearing jackets Mainers relish the summer and early fall months when we can get outside and enjoy all that coast. The smell of salty breezes, the sound of seagulls and searching for seashells are just a few of the reasons you can find us there whenever possible. But, one thing has plagued the coast this year and that’s sharks. Curious about this recent increase in sightings? We’ve got the lowdown.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
