Two great white sharks are hanging out at the Jersey Shore and Delaware beaches this Memorial Day weekend. Mary Lee, a 16-foot, 3,456-pound great white shark surfaced in the water near Cape May, New Jersey and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware Saturday and remained in the area Sunday, according to the non-profit shark-tracking group OCEARCH.
The mature predator was about 15 miles east-southeast of Cape May when she last pinged on OCEARCH’s radar at 7 a.m. Sunday.
