Shark Details

2 sharks very active, in close proximity (mating?) Comment from Jackie Hall, Manx Basking Shark Watch Coordinator: This is very interesting as although this is very late indeed for 2 basking sharks to be seen in Manx waters I had one other phone call about a 12' long shark being seen near this location. Charles has now sent me a video of this shark. I will put it onto the news section and onto Facebook. It is actually one shark showing its dorsal and its tail fin. Thank you so much Charles!
