Guide Summary and Photographs

On today’s trip, we managed to spot four of the Marine Big 5! We left the harbour on Whale Whisper which is our slightly smaller eco trip wessel. It was a perfect day to be out on the ocean and we were lucky enough to spot some Humpback dolphins pretty early in the trip.

We watched them feed for a while which was a pretty awesome sight. At one point, it appeared as though a younger dolphin was struggling to swallow a fish, this was a very intriguing thing to witness and something we are unlikely to forget very soon.

Next, our guests were treated to the sight of Big Rosie, a large female white shark. Rosie is a frequent visitor to the bay and our sister vessel, Slashfin. Rosie is estimated to be around 4,2m long and was first recorded in our books in 2012. After viewing her, we couldn’t help but giggle at the comparatively tiny shark which appeared next. We lingered for a little while longer before making our way towards Dyer Island.

At the island, we spotted some African penguins which had perched themselves on a large rock above the cormorants. This gave us an excellent view of these awkward little birds. Following this, we spent some time around Geyser Rock were we witnessed some interesting seal shenanigans.

Overall, a great trip on an awesome boat.
