Arrival - Newquay, Cornwall
The hotels in Newquay are aplenty and so to provide the best value for money, we will work with you and your budget to decide on the best hotel for your break. Perhaps you fancy a no-fuss value B&B or maybe you’d prefer a 4-star hotel & spa. Either way, we will tailor the trip to your liking.
Activity #1 - Basking Shark Encounter
You’ll have the rare opportunity to witness the Basking Sharks off the coasts of England when the sea’s plankton is brought to the surface through the process of upwelling.
You’ll be sailing out to some of the hotspots where you’ll have a good chance of spotting these magnificent fish. Once close enough you’ll have the opportunity to jump overboard and swim alongside the animals as they gracefully cruise by (age restrictions may apply). This activity will typically last 3 hours or more, depending on provider.
Activity #2 - Blue Shark Encounter
Dependant on the availability and the subsequent provider who takes you on this activity, you will have the chance of getting up close with these sleek sharks either from the security of a cage or by open-water snorkelling.
To get to their habitat will take a lengthy bit of sailing to reach the 15-20 miles offshore where the sharks roam. This activity is a full day and will likely last upwards of 7 hours.
