Spotted on a boat trip with Sea Life Surveys in Tobermory on Wednesday!
Millie and Fly got to come along too!

Great thing to see, Basking Sharks are huge (but harmless plankton feeders) we used to live in Devon and I took my son Jon down to the pier fishing the day after watching Jaws on TV. He asked if we get sharks like "Jaws" in this country and I assured him we dont but I still remember his face when a basking Shark came along the pier "pure terror", mind you that was many years ago now.

Great pics! It's my dream to swim alongside a basking shark! Amazing creatures!
Great pictures KatTai. I only just missed you as I was up there only two weeks ago. Sorry to it rained all day.
Here is a few pictures of the magic of Tobermory: -
Can't help singing the words from a well know children's series.
Wow it must have been a brilliant sight Kat i would love to see one.
Looks like the hounds are enjoying the trip too.
My photos are on Flickr and Website
Cracking shots, must have been a huge thrill to have been so close.

I am green with envy, beautifiul creatures that I see only on TV. Looks like Fly wanted to join in the fun too, lovely pics.
Lot to learn
Great photos, Kat. Never seen one myself so rather envious. How big was it? It's difficult to judge from photos.

No idea how big it was, just big LOL it went right passed the back of the boat and was easily the length of that. Amazing to see, I've seen basking sharks before with the same company and have wanted to do another trip for years!
The dogs loved it - they were quiet when indoors but when I took them on deck they realised we were surrounded by water and then went mad whining and barking and howling because they wanted to go swimming!
Awesome shots KatTai, certainly a creature I too would like to see.
