NSRI, local Municipalities along the Southern Cape and Eastern Cape coastline and marine authorities are appealing to coastal users, in particular bathers, paddlers, surfers, body boarders and kite boarders, to exercise caution due to increased inshore shark activity.

On Wednesday, 25 May, at Jeffreys Bay, a large shark was spotted in the breaking surfline at Secrets Beach across Commercial Marine. Surfers cleared the water without incident.

Over the past weeks and more recently increased shark activity has been noticed along the Southern Cape coastline from Mossel Bay to Plettenberg Bay and the Eastern Cape coastline from Storms River, Tsitsikamma, to Jeffreys Bay.

In cooperation with local Municipalities we are appealing to the public to exercise caution along these stretches of coastline due to the noticeable increased shark activity.
