PEOPLE ON THE WATER SAY THIS SHARK WAS ROUGHLY THE SIZE OF THEIR 20 FOOT BOAT. IT WENT RIGHT UNDER THEM IN THE MIDDLE OF CAPE COD BAY. THE LATER SHARK SIDING SIDING. SIX BEACH IS CLOSED TODAY BECAUSE OF SIGHTINGS OF SHARKS. WE SPOKE WITH THE FAMILY WAS OUT BOATING ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE. Reporter: DESPITE GROWING UP ON CAPE COD BAY, THIS BROTHER, SISTER AND COUSIN FROM PLYMOUTH ARE STILL WIDE-EYED ABOUT THEIR FRIDAY AFTERNOON ENCOUNTER. DEFINITELY WAS NOT SCARED OF US. Reporter: THERE WERE ABOUT HALFWAY BACK IN THIS 22 FOOT BOAT. LIKE THE BIGGEST THING I’VE EVER SEEN. A MASSIVE CREATURE. WAS HUGE.
