Basking shark hotspot

BS4 small

The rocky headland of Hella Point near Land’s End offers great views of basking sharks during the summer months. The Cornwall Wildlife Trust Basking Shark Project runs sightings here from June to the end of August. For instance in 2010, more than 600 basking sharks were sighted here, mainly in June along with grey seals, sun fish, fin and minke whales and common, bottlenose and risso dolphins.
