Shark Details

At least six sharks seen between Fleshwick and this spot, although two very close here. Both seemed to be feeding and were very close to the land. They were not interested in us, and we kept our distance. Watched them in the same spot for about 20 minutes. A further two spotted seperately close to the land, and two more further to sea on the way back to Port Erin. Nearby were about five seals, and we noticed lots of tiny jellyfish.

Environment Details

High tide coming on, sea felt rough in our little open dinghy, but probably wasn't too bad.
