All beaches remained closed in San Clemente Monday after more than two dozen sharks were spotted off the coast.

Up to 25 sharks were seen in the waters on Sunday within 25 yards of the beach between Cotton’s Point and Capistrano Beach, some up to 10 feet long.

Monday morning, two great white sharks were seen off the coast. Fisherman Spencer Wonder even hooked and released one of them while he was fishing off San Clemente Pier.

Sunday’s sightings were the most sharks spotted in the area so far.

This is in addition to shark attack at San Onofre.


Scientists believe there are a number of reasons behind the increase in shark sightings off our coast. These reasons may include a change in weather patterns that impact migration. Officials also want to remind beachgoers that the ocean is the sharks’ home, so people should stay away when there are sightings.

“A healthy shark population is indicative of a healthy marine ecosystem altogether. They’re the predator, they’re the apex predator, top of the line. So if they’re able to survive and sustain and grow at the rate we’re witnessing, that means it’s a very healthy bottom trophic level environment,” Wonder said.

Signs were posted along San Clemente beaches warning people to stay out of the water for now.
