    The Boston Globe reported a shark sighting fourteen hours ago at Martha's Vineyard. There has been a record number of shark sightings this summer on the coast in this area (including the Vineyard, Nantucket, and Cape Cod).

    But that doesn't mean you and others are unsafe swimming. Stay in shallow water. If you see seals, stay well away from them. Keep an eye out for swimmers in trouble (which is good policy all the time).

    I've vacationed in the area dozens of times. Jellyfish are fully visible and have never been a problem when I swam. Just don't go in if you see them.
