The Santa Barbara Waterfront Facilities Manager says a surfer spotted a great white shark near Leadbetter Point on Tuesday.
The surfer says the shark was swimming about five feet away from them.
They say the dorsal fin and tail were both out of the water.
Officials say based on the description of the shark's size and color, they think it is a great white.
The city has posted warning signs on 14 beaches along the Santa Barbara coast.
The signs will be up for 72 hours unless there are more sightings.
