Guide Summary and Photographs

It’s been another picture perfect day out on the ocean.

Today we launched just before the water was getting to low, as we have springtide at the moment. After cruising along the coast, we made our way slowly towards Dyer Island. Closer to the island we spotted many Cape cormorants, White breasted cormorants and four African penguins.

After spending some time bird watching, we headed in the direction towards Shark Alley and spotted a juvenile African penguin in the water. We stopped the boat and had a nice close encounter with the penguin, who was really relaxed around the vessel. We arrived at a rather empty Geyser Rock,we guess most of the Cape Fur seals were out at sea, fishing since it was close to lunch time.

During our tour we saw thousands of Cape cormorants leaving the island. On the way towards Danger Point we saw two Brydes whales, a mother and her calf. They were traveling alongside our vessel, very relaxed, but we soon had to leave this calf pair behind and head back to the Great White House for some nice warm soup and sandwiches.
