What appears to be a blue shark has been spotted in Pilot Bay this afternoon.
Monique Brown posted the video on the Mount Maunganui Notice Board in hopes those who were planning to take a dip in the afternoon sun would be aware.
She said her stepfather had taken the video when returning to the boat ramp.
"The shark was around 2.5 to 3m.
