Great White shark surfaces at Kitty Hawk

Posted at 1:50 PM, Dec 13, 2013

The Great White Shark known as Katherine was spotted in the surf off Kitty Hawk last night.

This morning, she has surfaced twice off Pea Island.

Katherine – a 14-foot-long, 2,300 pound Great White Shark – could be headed to Virginia Beach.

She was tagged by the Marine Research Group, Ocearch, back in August off the coast of Cape Cod in Massachusetts.

This Great White Shark was staying up around the cape –- until last week — and was was recently off the coast of the Eastern Shore. However, the last tracking data shows the shark is heading southwest.


Great Whites tend to go where the food is, and her course could change at any given moment.

Also, there are already Great White Sharks like Katherine off the Coast of Hampton Roads.

She’s just the only one we can track.
