The red x is where an old barge was sunk and we used to dive here. Its gone now.
The shark location is noted.
Martha's Vineyard is the island toward the bottom of the picture, Nantucket is just to the right of
the Vineyard, and the Cape Cod mainland is top center. The Elizabeth Islands string to the SW.
Great boating area, but swim when there are no sharks.
We had been fishing in the area in the morning, and had gone into Hadley Harbor for lunch, and had
no clue about the shark until upon getting home and receiving an email from Richie's co-workers at WHOI,
telling us about it. My brother jumped into his boat and got there in the late afternoon.
Its rough current and tides around Woods Hole, so you dont linger there long in a small boat.
Or you can come into Eel Pond and tie up at one of the MBL docks overnight(with permission)

other sizes: small medium original
