PLEASURE POINT – Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office fliers at the Hook and other areas of Pleasure Point remained Monday after two people said they saw a shark in the water Saturday morning.

Someone reported what appeared to be a shark’s dorsal fin in the water off Rockview Drive and another person saw a similar fin at Second Peak, said sheriff’s Sgt. Joe Clarke. Others said it might have been a dolphin.

The beaches were not closed, but fliers were posted Saturday. Capitola police also sent a Nixle text alert to subscribers Saturday about the sighting.

Clarke said the fliers didn’t seem deter many surfers at the Hook on Sunday or Monday.

About 8:30 a.m. July 7, an estimated 18-foot shark struck a kayak near the kelp bed off

Pleasure Point. A man in the kayak was fishing and was not injured.Teeth fragments and a bite mark were left on the kayak.
