Great white tagged off the Cape swimming to Florida

Posted: Updated:
 Scientists making a great find just off the coast of Florida, a great white shark named Katharine that was tagged off Cape Cod last year.

Now she's on the move and scientists think they know where she's headed next.

A team of researchers from Ocearch are able to track her in real time. By the looks of it, she's got her sights set on Texas.

Last summer Katharine was tagged and outfitted with a locator in Cape Cod.

She then started clocking in pings all the way down the eastern sea board.

Last month the tracker pinged several times in central Florida, and now she’s in the Gulf of Mexico.

Possibly arriving in Texas in the coming weeks. That's more than 4,000 miles.  

People across the U.S. are fascinated with following this ocean giant just as vacation season heats up with plans to venture out into the ocean water.
