Fishing boat encounters huge Great White shark in Cape Cod Bay


Read Boston Magazine

“Look at the size of that fish.”

That’s the only thing Captain Tyler Macallister could think to say when his boat, the F/V Cynthia C, came across a massive Great White shark off the coast of Cape Cod on Monday morning.

Macallister, who takes trip out on the ocean to fish for tuna on the vessel, described the shark as roughly 16 to 18 feet in length. After spotting the shark from a distance, crew members of the F/V Cynthia C approached it, and took video as it circled around the ship.
