Guide Summary and Photographs


It was a great day to be at sea, no wind and a lot of sunshine. Our first sighting for the day was a Great White shark around Slashfin the boat from our sister company. As every day we stopped there and try to see these amazing creatures. While we were watching the shark circling their boat another shark came closer investigating our vessel.

On our way to Dyer Island we spotted two African penguins foraging for some food. Arrived at the island system we were cruising into the world famous Shark Alley to see all the Cape Fur seals. Some were cooling down in the water but the majority was laying on Geyser Rock enjoying the sunshine.

In a bit of deeper water we came across some Bryde’s whales, in total we came across two individuals traveling slowly towards Danger Point.
