City officials said the sharks were active on the western side of the bay - particularly in the Fish Hoek and Clovelly areas.
The Shark Spotters organisation had recorded 12 sightings over the last five days, with at least one sighting every day and up to five sightings on a single day.
“It is believed many of the sightings are of the same shark utilising the
area, but there has also been more than one shark over this time,” the City said.
“Summertime is normally the time white sharks are more common in the area, a trend observed for many years.”
Water users should be extra vigilant at this time. - SAPA
