Diving with Sharks

The increase in sightings of basking sharks in recent years has proven to be a bonus for our divers, the areas around the Small Isles and Coll and Tiree provide regular sightings with several monsters around the 9 metre mark being sighted in 2010 . It is not unusual for the divers to surface from a dive in these areas and find themselves in the company of 4 or 5 feeding baskers. Mindful of the harm that can be caused by harassing these stunning creatures we always comply strictly with the code of conduct put in place by the "Basking Shark Project".
