Second Shark Sighting: Swimmers warned after another hammerhead spotted near La Jolla

San Diego Lifeguards said a kayak fisherman was approached by a nearly 7-foot shark somewhere between 1-1/2 to 2 miles off of La Jolla Shores, at 12:10 p.m. According to lifeguards, the shark followed the kayaker to about 250 feet away from the boat launch. That’s when the man flagged down a lifeguard boat and warned a nearby swimmer. The beaches between La Jolla Cove and Scripps Pier remain open, but a shark advisory was in effect until the end of the Sunday.
