Video: Shark Makes ‘Visit’ To Shelly Bay Beach
Monday, June 04, 2018

Yet another video of a shark has gone viral, this time with footage appearing to show the shark coming in close to shore at Shelly Bay Beach.

This latest shark sighting comes following a number of others, with local expert Choy Aming previously saying that he is “almost positive that the same hammerhead is being spotted repeatedly,” going on to explain that hammerheads “are quite docile and are not really a threat to people” and noted that “this may be the only hammerhead you see in Bermuda in your life.”


In April, Mr. Aming, who is involved with Bermuda Shark Project, told Bernews, “I am almost positive that the same hammerhead is being spotted repeatedly. I have been sent probably 10 different videos of the hammerhead over the last few weeks.

“This shark was first in Flatts and then spotted twice in St.George’s Harbour at the beginning of April. No one saw it for a week or so and then it was spotted at Swing Bridge and twice in St. Georges Harbor again. The last sighting was in the channel near Admiralty House on the weekend.”
