There was a group of 4 sharks that were nose to tail swimming that seemed to be interacting with each other. I also saw a breach. Sharks varied in length from 4 to 10m.
The sharks seemed to keep going starting from half a kilometre out. I counted 15 but it was probably more. There were ones further than 3.5km out too in the distance. Note from Jackie Hall: "Fantastic! So at least 15 basking sharks here and more elsewhere down off Niarbyl, Port Erin and the Sound so this was the best basking shark day for at least 4 years.
