Sharks Cove is a popular place for tide pool exploration. It is invitingly calm during the summer months when it is usually perfectly safe for families and kids. I’ve gone there myself many times to look at little fish, crabs and other sea life. I even saw a small eel one time.
But during the winter, Sharks Cove can be downright angry. Sometimes it’s hard to tell just how powerful and dangerous a wave is until you see it pound against a rock. You might see a wave and think that it looks like a decent size swell but nothing scary. Then when it hits the rocks you see the water explode tens of feet into the air. That’s when you know that you better stay out of the water.
But no matter the time of the year, Sharks Cove is a pretty cool place to check out. If you’re driving along the North Shore and have never been there before, it’s definitely worth a look. Chances are you’ll either see a calm and peaceful cove or an exciting and awesome display of nature’s power.
