The Coast Guard is telling recreational boaters and paddlers to watch out for sharks in the ocean waters off the Northeast.
 
The Coast Guard issued the shark advisory Friday, just before the July Fourth weekend.
 
The advisory from Coast Guard boating specialist Al Johnson says the sharks could be about 15 feet long. He says that’s big enough to capsize a small boat or kayak.
 
Johnson says a passing shark “would surely find a splashing paddle or dangling hand inviting.” He says boaters should steer clear of seals, a favorite food of sharks.
 
Officials say swimmers are safe as long as they use common sense.
