Guide Summary and Photographs

Although it has been a bit quiet we had a great cruise around the bay and beyond.

Just after lunch time we launched our vessel ‘Dream Catcher’ from the Kleinbaai harbour and were heading towards Uilenkraalsmond. After stopping there for a quick YSI reading we were back on course and were slowly cruising along the coastline to see what we can spot. On our way we picked up a loose piece of kelp to inspect the brown algae. Closer to Dyer Island we spotted a African penguin in the water, but unfortunately they can be quite skittish around the boat, so it took a dice and moved off. But around the Island, on our way into Shark Alley we spotted another two penguins, which were a lot more relaxed.
Arrived in Shark Alley we watched the Cape Fur seals playing in the water and others were chilling on land. After spending enough time with these marine mammals we decided to continue our tour and look for some wildlife activity behind Dyer Island in a bit of deeper water. There we came a across some common seabirds in our area. We spotted a few Cape Gannet scanning the ocean for fish and thousands of Cape cormorants. In between there were also a few Sooty shearwater, one was busy running on the surface to take off and glide again in the south easterly breeze. All in all we had a great time out at sea with a bunch of different animals.
