Cabot has traveled 4,000 miles around the Atlantic ocean since last October.
The shark, who is named after explorer John Cabot, has been spotted as far south as Florida.
Last week, he was recorded around Delaware's coast.
Just like the namesake, the great white is now venturing into territories not before visited by his kind.
