Guide Summary and Photographs

Slowly but surely the whale season is starting. Once again we launched from the Gansbaai harbour due to low tide and made our way slowly around Danger Point. Just outside the harbour we came across a lonely African penguin and were lucky enough to have a glimpse of the bird. As we came closer to Danger Point lighthouse we heard one of the crew members saying he spotted a spout so we slowed down the boat and were lucky to see some Humpback whales. We encountered three whales traveling close to each other further off shore. We stayed a fair amount of time with the whales before we made our way to Dyer Island. Arrived in the Dyer Island Nature reserve we were slowly cruising through Shark Alley to have a closer look at the Cape Fur seals on Geyser Rock. Some were having a cool down in the water others were laying on land enjoying the sun. After seeing three out of the big five me moved on towards the coast and then to Kleinbaai harbour.
