Basking Shark feeding near the surface

Shark sighting from Cline Marine Tours

   Recently I had ask Mr. Conrad Cline of Cline Marine Whale Watching in Deer Island if he could share any shark encounters he may have experienced over his many years on the Bay of Fundy. This is one of is more recent encounters.
    I have personally seen various size creatures over the years...some appeared to have been Great White, Basking, and Tiger etc. The photo above was from last summer. My son was steering while I went below and when he slowed the boat on the NW fringes of Owen Basin headed NW. I saw a significant wake on the port side of our vessel. I thought he must be coming up to a small boat and went to investigated further. The wake was actually from the fin of the shark in the photo. The shark turned out to be a large Basking shark.
