Cape Cod National Seashore Park encompasses much of Cape Cod and acts as a gateway to many Provincetown beaches, including Herring Cove and Race Point Beach. The park also gives access to the Province Lands Bike Trail and the Dune Shacks of Peak Hill Bars Historic District.
Cape Cod is wild and beautiful. Be Smart. Be Safe. Have Fun.
Cape Cod’s waters are part of a natural and wild marine ecosystem with a rich diversity of sea life, including sharks. Seals are the major prey species for the great white shark, and as the seal population increases, the great white shark has become more numerous. There are confirmed reports of great white sharks feeding on seals close to shore. Spotter planes flying along the Outer Cape have also observed great white sharks near swimming beaches.
Be Shark Smart – get the facts!
