A shore dive (or a boat dive) where you can dive with large numbers of broadnosed sevengill or cowsharks swimming amongst the giant kelp in about 12 meters of water. The sharks seem to be there all year round (with greater numbers in the summer months), swimming slowly and aimlessly in big circles and will approach very close to divers. They have been known to be aggresive to spearfishermen
