Environment Details

When first seen a seal was close by. It was just after slack water with little tide, sea flat calm, no wind, no other sea life seen other than seal. Good visibility and water clear. Switched off engines a reasonable distance away and as so often happened shark came to within about 20 metres of boat..... mouth open feeding.
