This group of kayakers got the treat of their lives when they were joined in the sea by a massive basking shark. The group were out for an evening paddle around the coastal town of Peel on the Isle of Man just off the west coast of the Island. The incredible images were taken by Keirron Tastagh, founder of Adventurous Experiences, who was leading the kayak trip. Tastagh commented: “The Isle of Man is a known hotspot for Basking Sharks, but it’s rare to have everyone in the group experience such a close encounter.
