Deal Beach Temporarily Closed After Sharks Spotted
Deal Beaches were temporarily closed today after two sharks were spotted off shore.
Deal Police reported a 6-7 foot shark was seen at around 11 a.m. approximately 100 yards off the shoreline near Deal Casino.
No one was injured, but all swimmers were directed out of the water by lifeguards. They were given the okay to return into the water after 90 minutes had passed without a shark sighting.
The sharks were swimming near a pod of dolphins and when last seen, were heading north toward Long Branch.
