Guide Summary and Photographs

We had fantastic sightings today, with all the Marine Big 5. While cruising past Uilenkraalsmond we managed to have a glimpse of one Indian Ocean humpback dolphin. Unfortunately we didn’t manage to get a ID photo, but our marine biologist identified the dolphin as ‘Summer’ by just having a look at her dorsal fin. In our dolphin catalogue we have 22 identified individuals at the moment. But further research will be done in cooperation with the Dyer Island Conservation Trust to further our knowledge of the local group of Humpback dolphins. If you would like to find out more about our research visit the website of the Dyer Island Conservation Trust and read more about the endangered Humpback dolphins.

Upon arrival in the Pearly Beach area, we got to see some great Southern Right whale activity. We encountered two cow calf pairs. One little calf was active today, breaching several times close to our vessel. As well approached our boat ‘Dream Catcher’ nice and close.

After this amazing experience with the whales, we passed the Cape Fur seal colony on Geyser Rock and Dyer Island where we also got to see an African Penguin. On the way back to the harbour we stopped by our sister company Marine Dynamics, to see a Great White Shark. What a great day out at sea.
