Shark Details

Environment Details

No other sea life close by. After sighting a basking shark a couple of hours earlier we went out to the Ringwall for a couple of hours and were returning to Port St Mary via Sound. Initially it was assumed this was the same shark but we could not see the white spots noted on the initial sighting, different shark? No wind, seemed more sheltered from tide. Again switched off engines a distance away and the shark came to us for photos!
