We also spent time a few Minke whales, Clamp and her calf, and perhaps the most exciting sighting of the day for our passengers were the 2 Basking sharks we watched feeding.

Once we slowly made our way to the sharks we could see them with their mouths wide open as Basking sharks are filter feeders just like the whales! A Basking shark will basically swim through the water with an open mouth allowing ocean water to constantly be pushed in to the mouth and out through the gills.
