Guide Summary and Photographs

We had beautiful, calm seas when we headed out on our morning whale watching trip today, and not very far from the harbour we spotted our first whales. Two Southern Right whales were slowly traveling together and some lucky passengers got to see one of the whales breach, which is when they jump straight out of the water.

The whales traveled slowly next to us, coming up quite close to the boat. One of them lifted its tail out of the water a couple of times. Did you know a Southern Right whale’s tail can get up to 5 metres wide? While watching the whales we also got to see a small group of African Penguins sitting on the water nearby. These birds are endangered and we do not manage to see them every day.

After the whales and penguins we went over to Geyser Rock to take a look at the thousands of Cape Fur seals that sit on the rock and play around in the water. The wind started to pick up on our way back to the harbour, but we certainly enjoyed the best part of the day on the water.
