HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (WSAV) – Hudson’s Seafood guests were in for quite the sight on Sunday as several sharks swam around the restaurant’s dock.
A video shows at least five sharks circling in the shallow waters of Skull Creek.
WSAV is told the video was taken after a fishing charter returned to the dock and threw out scraps into the water.
On Friday, the Town of Hilton Head reported a possible shark bite about 10 miles down the shore in the Sea Pines area. A man said he was bitten on the foot by a shark while swimming in waist-deep water.
As a result, Shore Beach Services closed down a portion of the beach.
If a shark gets near you in the waters, the International Shark Attack File, which provides a database of shark attacks, recommends maintaining eye contact with the shark and slowly moving away to exit the water.
Should a shark bite you, hit the shark in the eyes, gills or on the snout, and push away, they said.
