A few days ago, I posted this about tracking sharks off the West Coast of the Isle of Man.
Well, last night, some people popped out in kayaks to… well, to have a kayak, I guess and they saw a shark close up.
Like – really close up:
More amazing photos via that link.
Remember that this is a Basking shark (Cetorhinus maximus) – a completely harmless* plankton eater, so these guys are completely safe. Not like if you were out surfing in False Bay and you saw a fin that close. Briefly.
* unless you’re a plankton.
