I am a big fan of having all these GW’s in our waters. One of the planets most incredible creatures. That said I do not wetsuit or kayak so.......

Have there been any in the canal. I know the seals have been increasing. I wonder if a shark likes that kind of current.  I would imagine the east end would be a good spot.

2 years ago in Oct, a tagged shark with ping detection to bouys, was pinged-in south of Plymouth, just north of Canal east entrance.

About 24 hours later..pinged again near MV, between MV and Eliz Islands channel.

The only possible way the shark could have traveled that fast, was thru the whole Canal and Buzzards Bay, perhaps even thru Woods Hole.

The distance around the Cape, thru Nantucket sound to consider, was 100 miles, where the Canal route was about 20.

Good. Let the seal chomping begin.

As long as it's just seals.  I've been over that blue dot in a kayak multiple times.  They are probably there because some the big gray seals moved in several years ago.
