Helicopters will be deployed along Victoria's coast again today, to patrol popular beaches as shark sightings continue.

One beach was closed for four hours after a two-metre shark was sighted yesterday.

It came after 32 sharks were spotted from choppers flying in the waters off two popular swimming beaches.

Authorities are urging people to swim at patrolled beaches.
