Guide Summary and Photographs

As per the guest comments, we had perfect conditions out at sea today. It was partly cloudy, but no wind was blowing so the sea was completely flat. We were heading along the coastline to Pearly Beach, where we spotted two traveling Humpback whales. The whales were heading eastwards towards their breeding grounds up the east coast of Africa. We also got to see some African penguins close by. Upon arrival at the Dyer Island nature reserve we approached Geyser Rock to have a look at all the Cape Fur seals. And in between all the Cape Fur seals we spotted a Black Oystercatcher, with their black feathers and bright orange beaks.

On our way back home we stopped at our sister company Marine Dynamics where we got to see two Great White sharks. The visibility out there is perfect at the moment, winter is definitely the best time for Great White shark cage diving!











Remember to visit the African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary on your way back to Gansbaai!
