Guide Summary and Photographs

Today we launched a bit later than usual, due to low tide.

It was a lovely day, but a cold south easterly breeze was blowing towards us. While cruising along the coastline, one of our crew members spotted an Indian Ocean humpback dolphin close to shore. Unfortunately we couldn’t get any photos as it was a bit far off, but the dolphin was so shallow that we couldn’t go any closer. The dolphin was slowly traveling up and down.

After spending some time watching this marine mammal we traveled slowly towards Dyer Island. Just before getting closer to see the African penguins some diving seabirds a few hundred meters away did draw our attention. We slowly approached and watched them diving for fish, what a spectacular sight! We spotted many Swift terns, Cape cormorants, Cape gannets and a Cory shearwater. Back on route we passed the Cape Fur seal colony a few times before heading slowly back towards the harbour.
