On 17 July 2002, a local friend of mine, who happens to be a fisherman and Rib exponent, saw a Great White Shark (I believe him implicitly)in the vicinity of the Desormes bouy, between Jersey's NW corner (Grosnez point) and the aforementioned bouy. He estimated it to be a mini-submarine in excess of 18 ft and was totally in awe of the fish. This picture was taken whilst waiting for the flotilla to arrive from Alderney, it was extremely hot and humid and the kids decided to cool off, possibly the exact spot where Kevin had spotted the shark.
I was extremely puzzled as to why we had not come across the resident pod of dolphins that frequent these waters on the cruise, and this probably explains it. Keith, can your daughter shed any light on this, or any other marine expert for that matter?
