Kayaker’s Boat Gets Rocked By Giant Basking Shark

A group of kayakers had the shock of their lives when an open-mouthed shark came within reaching distance of them whilst they boated off the coast off the Isle of Man.

Jennifer Kneale, 37, was just finishing up her day at 7th Wave, a sailing school, when she was informed of a shark in the bay.

Instead of heading home, inquisitive Jen and her team of sailing instructors jumped in their kayaks to witness the rare treat for themselves.

Capturing the nerve racking moment – which lasted around two hours – Jen filmed a basking shark swimming open-mouthed, its smoothly pointed fin breached out of the water,which caused the waves to rock the surrounding vessels.
