Due to the ocean getting warmer and the presence of seals, sharks have been tagged in the Atlantic in recent years. They are mainly seen off of Chatham where there are large seal colonies. We do not surf in Chatham, and beach patrol, lifeguards and local officials are trained to keep an eye out for sharks, and to proactively alert beach goers should one venture north. The Cape Cod Surf Camp instructors have had many years of experience surfing these waters and we are confident the beaches we hold camp and lessons at are safe. We keep the kids close to shore, far away from seals, and everyone is watched closely both in and out of the water.
