GMA’s Ginger Zee has a scary encounter with great white sharks

The spate of shark sightings this summer is far from that fin-ito – just ask Ginger Zee.

The Good Morning America meteorologist had chilling encounters with 10 great white sharks in four hours while surveying the species off the coast of Chatham, Mass., she said.

Stunning footage posted to Instagram by the famous weatherwoman on Thursday shows the massive man-eaters lurking beneath the surface as she accompanies biologists on a boat tagging sharks.

“Tag Great White Sharks! We saw 10 in 4 hours. Amazing study,” Zee posted, along with wild footage from the Mission Atlantic White Shark Conservancy.

“It tells us where to go, and so far we’ve spotted more than half a dozen. Nothing tagged yet,” she wrote in a previous post.

A shark is then seen swimming alongside the boat before a researcher attaches a satellite tracking tag to it.

Meteorologist Ginger Zee said she encountered 10 sharks during a tagging expedition.

Anxious fans of Zee – who is also ABC’s chief meteorologist – urged her to be careful not to get eaten.

“Just watch your arms!” proclaimed one observer in the comments section.

Another added: “Earth is trying to tell people [to] Stay out of the water.”

The chilling footage comes after at least four great white sharks were sighted off the coast of New England over a three-day period earlier this month.

There have also been at least six shark attacks in the waters off Long Island in the past month, officials and victims have warned.
