Guide Summary and Photographs

We started our trip with a raft of African penguins. Did our regular visit to Geyser Rock to see our lazy but entertaining Cape Fur seals and also mad e a quick stop at our shark cage diving vessel Slashfin. But unfortunately still no Great White sharks around. After a very long search we finally found a shy Humpback whale on our way around Danger Point. Waiting for the whale to surface a juvenile Shy albatross gave us a few good passes.

We launched from Gansbaai harbour on our second trip due to the low tide. As we came around Danger Point we found two Humpback whales slowly traveling in the direction of Quin Point. The whales came up a couple of times nice and close to the boat, even showed us a fluke and we moved on the happy clients.

Behind Geyser Rock we quickly saw a white morph Giant petrel passing us. Only a small percentage of Giant petrels will be white with a few brown spots. A playful Humpback whale was also playing with some kelp, rolling around and showing off.
