Guide Summary and Photographs

It was a beautiful autumn day with lots of sunshine and a calm sea. Just outside the harbour we already spotted some splashes a bit further off, as we approached we saw hundreds of Common dolphins. As we got closer the dolphins approached us and were bow riding our vessel Dream Catcher for a few minutes before they got distracted by a shoal of fish. In between the dolphins we saw some mullets jumping out of the water trying to escape the predators. After a few minutes the dolphin picked up some speed again and were heading towards Danger Point, some were porposing very fast so they were completely out of the water, how wonderful to see. The dolphins moved off quite quickly and we also continued our tour along the coast towards the shark cage diving boats. We stopped at our sister company Marine Dynamics and have been lucky enough to see a shark. We didn’t stay around the cage diving boats for too long as there are so many more things to discover in the bay.

Ina bit of deeper water, around 40m we spotted a Bryde’s whale. Although it was a bit shy we managed to have a nice look at this beautiful creature. While waiting for the whale to come up again, we were watching three African penguins resting on the surface. As we got closer to Dyer Island we tried to spot more of the endanger penguins. We also passed the Cape Fur seal colony to have a closer look as we saw some during our trip already further away in the water.

What a great day with such amazing sightings.
