The National Sea Rescue Institute has warned swimmers and surfers of increased White Shark activity in-shore along False Bay coastline.

NSRI spokesperson Craig Lambinon says sharks move from Seal Island to closer to the coast at this time of the year in search of food.

“The major increase in activity appears to be between Macassar and Strandfontein, but sharks have also been noticed at Fish Hoek.

“Swimmers along the popular beaches between Muizenberg and Fish Hoek should be on the look-out for shark spotter signals,” said Lambinon.

He added that bathers along the popular bathing and surfing beaches between Muizenberg and Fish Hoek should adhere to the shark spotter’s sirens and leave the water when the sirens are activated.
