According to OCEARCH's global shark tracker, Hilton, a mature male shark, was the last Great White to ping near the shorelines.

He is just over 12' and weighs roughly 1,326 pounds.

Hilton was first tagged in March 2017 near Hilton Head, South Carolina and is now approaching Wilmington.

According to OCEARCH, Savannah is heading toward Nova Scotia and is just passing through North Carolina waters.
