Diving Seals Lands End
Video taken off Lands end near the Longships lighthouse with close-ups of both the seals and the basking shark.
Getting so close to being able to observe Seals in their natural habitat is a wonderful experience. Their natural curiosity as they watch and swim around the divers is fascinating to watch.
The transformation from the lumbering inelegant floundering creatures you see when hauled out on a beach or rocks to the creature you see in the video is remarkable.
Seals are naturally curious creatures but disturbing them especially after they have given birth is a very bad idea. This can cause abandoned pups. Seals will often watch divers pop up near Kayaks and of course follow fishing boats into harbours the danger comes for both seal and human is when a human starts to chase them and invade their space.
