A small armada of kayaks, paddleboards and the pink rowing boat took to the water last Friday to get a closer look at a basking shark swimming around the bay. The shark was there for several hours just swimming along with his gobbag vooar wide wide open, getting merrily plankton drunk in the evening sunshine. This shark was smaller than the previous encounter on Thursday, perhaps just 6 or 7m long.
He seemed to enjoy the audience he had around him, treating folk to some really close passes. At one point the there was a kayak and a paddleboard, next to each other, maybe a foot space between them, the shark swam past them, turned around and swam right between the two of them with his fin placed exactly in the gap. It was truly incredible!
Since 5 o clock had been and gone we managed a staff kayak and row boat outing this time round #worstjobintheworld
