Looks good for a blacktip. Easily confused with a bull shark, but this appears to be an actual blacktip

take a look at a spinner shark. very common off our coast bigger ones like that one will have black tips on their fins also most true black tips the dorsal fin will have a dark black tip
all three are easy to confuse except the bulls will get much bigger

Spinner looks right. All easily confused

Could be an Atlantic Sharpnose, you can tell the difference between them and a blacktip by the tail fin but it's cut off in your picture. Some freinds and I caught 4 of them on Elmer's Island a couple weeks ago.
