You don’t need to jet off to the other side of the planet to embark on an adrenaline-charged adventure. In fact, there may be more to keep you entertained on this tiny isle than you first thought. So save those air miles, and leave those passports nestled safely in the bedside draw – the UK is taking on the big boys.
Granted, the Maldives may boast significantly balmier waters, but you don’t have to go all that way to swim with whale sharks when the world’s second largest fish can be found so close to home. Basking sharks pass through British waters between April and October, and they can be spotted off the coasts of Cornwall, Dorset, Cardigan Bay, the Isle of Man and the Scottish Hebrides. These five-tonne goliaths like sunny weather and calm winds, which is handy for us land-based softies. Day trips can be arranged with Charles Hood Photography and Shark Adventures.
