Basking sharks

Saw my first basking shark of the season on Saturday.

In the sea, within a mile of Silver Spray, swimming along under our stand up paddle boards.
It was about 11 foot long.

A second flat water trip on Sunday, saw another one. So it looks like their annual drift up the Cornish coast has begun.

We also saw either plenty of seals or the same one kept following us (which is what it looked like).

Both were heading north, so they will have gone past Perranporth beach within an hour of going past us.

 

 

A seal just in front of the board as we went through a tunnel.
