Video: Great White Shark Attacks Seal off Wellfleet

WELLFLEET – It’s been an action-packed few days for researchers with the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy.

Last Thursday, the team captured a violent predation of a seal by a great white shark off Wellfleet.

They were about 100 yards from the beach at the time. In the video, you can see the shark leap and grab the seal in its powerful jaw.


Also this week, shark researcher Dr. Greg Skomal had a great white leap out of the water right under him as he was standing on a platform extending from their boat.

That encounter was also captured on video.

The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy has tagged at least 8 sharks so far this year.

They’re in the 5th and final year of their white shark population study.
