Basking Sharks – Cornwall

Gentle Giants… 10m Sharks (with no teeth !)

Basking Skark

We have had some great weekend dive trips to Cornwall – FALMOUTH over recent years 2011-2014 to coincide with the annual arrival of the UK’s largest marine life encounter : BASKING SHARKS up to 10m long
– meeting one of these face to face on his PADI Advanced Course is the reason our Course Director Ryby gave up life as a mountaineering instructor and has spent the past 20 years underwater….
– a truly life changing experience !

Trips are planned to be a 3 day trip – with the very best chances of getting in to snorkel with one of these huge behemoths…
driving down to Falmouth on Friday afternoon, for overnight B&B (Fri/Sat) then diving Sat & Sun.
Heading back to Maidstone late on Sunday Afternoon (aim to be home 10pm)

Travelling down in convoy on Friday, with Accommodation at Guest House B&B.
Trips cost £230pp includes B&B accom, two days Boat Diving (2 dives/day)

We are taking a break from Cornwall this year to explore other UK dive sites
– We will be back soon : maybe next time we’ll go in search of the Blue Sharks ???
