Today we experienced perfect weather with only a light breeze blowing towards the shore.
On the morning trip we were very lucky and found Southern Right whales close to Dyer Island. The mother and her calf were moving alongside the kelp forest, heading into deeper water. On the second trip we managed to get a glimpse of a Bryde’s whale after it surfaced twice and then disappeared.
During all of our trips we saw the Cape Fur seals on Geyser Rock, but today the island was quite empty. Most of them must have been out at sea fishing. On the last trip, on the way back to the harbor we were cruising along the coast and were lucky to spot some Indian Ocean Humpback dolphins. It was also nice to see two dolphins we haven’t seen in month, Captain Hook and her calf Big Z.
All in all it was a great day out at sea with nice sightings.
