Close Encounters of the Shark Kind
Well folks I think we mentioned that we saw basking sharks off Ardnamurchan Point. Here's the proof...
It was a beautiful and calm day, the scenery was nothing short of spectacular. Karen shouted out 'sharks'!
Cyanide stopped and we had a huge basking shark about 5m long circling the boat. It even went right underneath us. We were very excited. I captured it on video and it looks great.
As we were watching 'our shark' Mike called on the radio saying they they had one by their boat as well. So over we went. Theirs was even bigger - about 6m.
It was the most amazing sight. Then it came right towards our boat. Karen put her underwater camera in the water and just started taking photos.
Here are the results.
