South Coast Shark Sightings Increase


In step with the common narrative that there are more sharks, more cameras, more ways to share photographic evidence, and more people enjoying summertime’s relatively warm water and weather, shark sightings along the South Coast of Santa Barbara are starting to ramp up, arguably peaking on 6/27 as a great white was spotted off the end of Stearns Wharf snacking on a dead dolphin. According to Shark Research Committee, which gathers information on encounters along the California coast, nine great white shark sightings were reported in Santa Barbara and Carpinteria in June.
