Guide Summary and Photographs

Doing a reverse trip we hoped to find some whales at Danger Point. On our way there, three big rafts of African penguins and lot of Cape cormorants indicated that there is some wildlife in the area.Not far from the point we found our first Humpback whale. The whale was a bit shy, but not long after found another one who gave us decent views. A couple of “wows” later we kept on moving and were heading towards Dyer Island.

Our next stop was at our sister company, who was anchored at the Geldsteen just behind Dyer Island. And finally the got to see a Great White shark today. Very good news! Close by was also a white morph Giant Petrel sitting in their chum slick and circling their vessel Slashfin. Might be even the same one from yesterday.

After a quick stop at the seals we made our way home along the coast.
