You might want to stay out of the water this summer.

A massive great white shark has been hanging around just south of New York’s coast, which leaves it only a stone’s throw away from the Canadian border. The 16-foot, 3,456 pound underwater beast, named “Mary Lee” was tagged by Nonprofit research group Ocearch back in 2012, and has been tracked via GPS ever since.

While we don’t know if she’ll decide to cross into Canadian waters, we do know Mary Lee seems to have her sights set on travelling North. On a website where you can track the movement of various sharks yourself, we can see that Mary Lee started her recorded journey near South Carolina, and has since swam past North Carolina, Virginia and Delaware. She’s actually been tweeting her travels the entire time, thanks to her (alleged and definitely fake) handle @MaryLeeShark.

Keep in mind though that shark attacks on humans are incredibly rare (your odds of being killed by one are 1 in 3,700,000). But if you’re still worried about them, we have a guide to what exactly you should do in a shark attack right here.

Happy swimming!
