Guide Summary and Photographs

What a great day out at sea we will definitely cherish. The weather forecast predicted some stormy weather over the next day or two, but today we had great sightings on both trips. On the first trip we saw four out of the Marine Big 5.

We spotted some little African penguins on Dyer Island, and a large number of Cape Fur seals on Geyser Rock. We also had a glimpse of a Great White shark, when we stopped around the shark cage diving vessels. On the first trip we spotted a blow in the distance. As we approached we saw it was a Humpback whale, or wait it was four of them! They have been traveling together.

The light was just perfect, the whales’ blow captured a rainbow. They also showed their beautiful flukes when they took a deeper dive. Each fluke underside is unique, that’s why scientists can use the pattern to identify the individual whales. On the second trip we spotted Brydes whales, a cow calf pair traveling alongside our vessel before we moved off towards Dyer Island.

We are looking forward to the amazing wildlife which is waiting for us after the upcoming no sea days.
