Guide Summary and Photographs

Today was overcast but that didn’t affect our sightings at all. Just after launching from the Kleinbaai harbour we were headed towards Danger Point where we spotted some Southern Right whales yesterday. We found one mother with her baby. They were very relaxed around out vessel but always on the move towards the end of the Danger Point peninsula. Sadly these days we have less and less sightings of the Southern Right whales, looks like all of them slowly heading back to their feeding grounds in the sub antarctic. On the last trip we saw some great whale behaviour, the calf was resting it’s fluke on top of its mothers head and rolling around her.

After spending some time with these gentle giants we moved towards Dyer Island to see the endangered African penguin. We also sighted Cape Fur seals on Geyser Rock. Their home today was quite empty, so most of them are probably out at sea hunting fish.

Before heading back to the harbour we stopped in an area called Joubertsdam. All the shark cage diving vessels anchors in this area during this time of the year and we got to see some Great White sharks around them. During our last two trips for the day we also managed to see the Humpback dolphins. Overall it was a lovely day out at sea.
