Guide Summary and Photographs

On our three whale watching tours today we were treated to some very active Southern Right whales on every trip.

On the first trip we found two single whales close to the harbour. One of the whales started to breach (jump out of the water) and it did this a number of times, giving everyone an amazing look. It also lifted its tail very high out, and came very close to the boat.

On the second and third tours we ended up going to Pearly Beach to find whales, but where once again treated to surface activity. On both tours we spent time with a sub-adult that was lifting its tail high out of the water over and over. This individual also approached the boat very close, giving us an incredible look. On both the second and third tours we also saw Mum and calf pairs also, but the young whale lifting its tail was the highlight.

On our first tour we were very lucky to see a group of Indian Ocean Humpback dolphins.

We tried to show our passengers a Great White shark on every tour also, and we were successful on two of the three. On the second tour we were very lucky and saw a very active shark breach out of the water next to our sister company Marine Dynamics. And on the third tour of the day the passengers got to see a nice raft of African penguins sitting on the water.

All three trips enjoyed the spectacle that is the Cape Fur seal colony on and around Geyser Rock. Three different but very successful trips out today!
