Guide Summary and Photographs

Today was another beautiful calm day. We launched this morning at 10 o’clock and were following our usual rout towards Uilenkraalsmond and further towards the shallows. Before heading to the islands we made a quick stop at the cage diving boats, but haven’t been very successful to see a shark, as the activity is still a bit slow after their two weeks disappearance. On our way towards Dyer Island we came across a flock of Cape gannets. Arrived at the island we had a glimpse of an African penguin in the water, but have been struggling to see them on the island today. However, we got to see the endangered Cape cormorants on Dyer Island in abundance. After visiting the Cape Fur seal colony we went into deeper waters to find some more wildlife. Out there we spotted numerous seabirds, like Sooty shearwater, White chinned petrel and a Sub-Antarctic skua. On our way back towards the harbour we were lucky to spot a Bryde’s whale taking a few breaths before disappearing.
