Guide Summary and Photographs

Our first sighting for today was a juvenile African penguin close to Franskraal. Further along the route we spotted Indian Ocean humpback dolphins close to shore. We stopped there for a while and they were curious enough to approach our vessel before heading back into shallow water. In the Uilenkraalsmond area there was a free swimming Great White shark and some more shark activity when we got to shark cage diving vessel, Slashfin.

On our way to Dyer Island we saw quite a number of seabirds on the water surfec. We spotted Cape cormorants on the island. Today we were lucky to see the first mating flights from the Swift terns as their mating season is about to start. We also passed the Cape Fur seal colony before heading back home to the harbour.
