67 Basking Sharks in 1 Week
67 Basking Sharks in 1 Week!
Check out this excellent video by Uwe Schubert from one of our shark weeks in 2019. Uwe was filming in 4k and captured some excellent footage over the trip which he's put all together in this film. We had fantastic conditions this week from our basking shark base in the Hebrides.
It was our best trip of the summer with so many sharks and perfect conditions to match. We also witnessed some very interesting close following and circling behaviour during an aggregation. We got a variety of footage which is currently being studied.
On this trip we were very lucky to encounter a rare leatherback turtle (it didn't surface long enough to get pictures!!!!), dolphins, whales, porpoises and many many seabirds. We also had a very special trip over to the Treshnish Isles where everyone had magical encounters with the seasonally resident puffins! Along with some great conditions for swimming in Fingal's Cave!
We're still hoping to be running our shark weeks this year, but we're also booking for 2021 and 2022! Check out the information here.
