Guide Summary and Photographs

Today was mostly overcast with a cold air and some swells. However, we had incredible Humpback whale activity around the boat. On both trip we were heading straight towards Danger Point and into deeper water to find some whales and we were lucky to find some Humpback whales. On our first trip we had a close breach to our vessel. On the second trip the whales just didn’t want to swim away from us they were coming up close and showing off with their flukes before taking a dive. The whale activity was just spectacular and it’s hard to find the right word to describe.

On both trips we also saw the African penguins out on the water. On the last trip we had a big group heading back to their home Dyer Island. And as every day we passed the Cape Fur seal colony on Geyser Rock. A few were swimming playful through the alley but most of them were just laying lazy on land.

On our first trip we encountered some Humpback dolphins on our way back to the harbour, great to see some individuals back in the bay.
