Shark Details

One small shark, spent an hour feeding in both straight lines (back and forth) and then circling around the boat. Right on the surface, dorsal, tail and nose showing. Last seen heading south. Comment from Jackie Hall: Amazing. We hardly ever get basking sharks after September 1st but the whole 2015 basking shark season was late.

Environment Details

Water murky, lots of jellyfish.
