Guide Summary and Photographs

Another great day with some Humpback whale activity.

The morning started off a cold and sunny but during our second trip the thick mist slowly came closer to the coast. However, we were fortuned enough to find some Humpback whale on their migration further north and they truly showed off today. On the first trip two whales approached our boat and showed us their flukes numerous times before tagging a deeper dive.

The second trips activity was just as spectacular with a breaching Humpback whale further behind Dyer Island. The whale breached several times before taking a break and picking up action again with some flipper slapping and a few more breaches.

On our second trip we also saw a Indian Ocean humpback dolphin in the shallow waters close to Uilenkraalsmond and a Bryde’s whale close to Dyer Island. The Bryde’s whale was surprisingly very friendly around the boat, as usually they tend to move off and take longer dive. On both trips we made a pass at the Cape Fur seal colony and saw the African penguins. Another day at sea we definitely cherish.
