Guide Summary and Photographs

Today we ran two whale watching trips in sunny and calm conditions. On the first trip we spotted a Bryde’s whale quite early on. It gave us some really nice looks as it came to the surface regularly, close to the shoreline. Then, out a bit further we came across three Southern Right whales traveling slowly together. When we stopped by our sister company Marine Dynamics who were shark-cage diving, we got to see a great white shark swimming just under the surface.

On the second trip of the day we again spotted whales quite early on in the trip. This time it was a mother and calf Southern Right whale pair. It is very special to see the young calves who will only be at most a month or two old at this time of the year. These two were very calm and we got some beautiful looks at both the Mum and her calf close to the boat. The calf may have been nursing as it switched sides on Mum a few times as we watched them. We also got to see a group of African penguins on this tour, sitting on the water.

On both trips we also visited the colony of Cape Fur seals hanging out by Geyser Rock. There were a lot of seals playing around in the water, which was so calm today, it gave us some great photo opportunities. The patterns in the water were stunning.
