The City of Cape Town has warned those who use the sea for recreational or for income purposes, that shark season is soon approaching.
In the past few days, sharks have been spotted at Muizenberg Beach on Monday just before midday, and at Sunnycove on Sunday.
The City’s Gregg Oelofse encouraged Capetonians to swim, kayak and surf in groups.
“We just want to inform people that, we find that White Sharks move closer inshore round about this time of year, in Spring and Summer.”
Oelfose said it was not unusual to spot Sharks this time of year and wanted to warn swimmers and surfers to be careful.
