Shark encounter

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:

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.

    Yes. Do that. Not sure if this was one being tracked, but they’re all still in that sort of area.
