Around mid May to mid June is the time to see Basking Sharks just off our coast! Don't be afraid - Basking Sharks are known as the gentle giant and only feed on plankton. As broadcasted on Country File on BBC 1 on Sunday the 8th May , they showed off some of the places to come and explore - here is the link if you missed it:

Penzance is the perfect little town to stay - just down the road from the outdoor Minack Theatre at Porthcurno (just past St. Buryan) overlooking arguably one of the most beautiful bays in the UK - Porthcurno Beach - which is a perfect place to spot these amazing creatures:
