(NECN) - New reports of shark sightings have swimmers on edge, and this time it's in a totally different area.

We've been telling you about all the sightings on the Cape, but now it's New Hampshire.

We have a look at Wallis Sands state beach in Rye.

A swimmer came out of the water there Monday afternoon. He said he saw two sharks.

Lifeguards told everybody to get out of the water.
 
These sharks were reportedly about six feet long and swimmers are still being kept out of the water.

We don't know what type of sharks those were but over the weekend we know it was a great white spotted in this photo off Nauset Beach in Orleans, Mass.

You can see the fin very close to a paddleboarder and a kayaker.

And we spoke by phone with that paddleboarder, Dana Richardson, about his experience.

Nauset Beach has since re-opened.
