Fintastic Blue Shark Cage Diving off Newquay

 Yacht racing past Atlantic Diver just off Newquay

We began our Blue Shark Cage Diving Expedition on an amazing calm , hot, balmy summer's day....yes I do mean in the UK...off Newquay ...deep out to sea where 32 of our British Sharks dwell . Our Shark enthusiasts boarded "Atlantic Diver" in Newquay harbour and off we sped passing Yachts racing and Dolphins playing...this was set to be a spectacular day!

After only a short wait our first Blue Shark appeared...We watched in amazement as the 2.5m Blue Shark attacked the Rubbie Dubbie bag and tore it to shreds just below the surface of the water, its tail fin thrashing around with immense power....absolutely AWESOME!! viewing

Common Dolphins were feeding a short distance from Atlantic Diver all day and provided great entertainment whilst we waited for the shark. A cute pod passed with a nursery of calves and had all of us cooing!Common Dolphins Porpoise past"Atlantic Diver" at great speed

A few Blue Jellyfish floated past the cage and allowed us to explore their beautiful structure.
