“Great crew pleasant experience” – Deb


Guide Summary and Photographs

It was another stunning day out at sea, the sun was shining all day and only a light breeze from the west was blowing. On our morning trip we were lucky and spotted two cow calf pairs close to Uilenkraalsmond. One of the little babies was quite special as it was brindle. Only about 4% are born like that, just after birth they are white and as they get older they change the skin colour into gray.

On the second trip we managed to see a cow-calf pair close to De Clyde, a reef system running from the mainland towards Dyer Island. And on the third trip we had a few mother with their baby’s in the Pearly Beach area. On all trips we also made a pass by our Cape Fur seal colony at Geyser Rock and Dyer Island. On the morning trip we were lucky and got to see three pelicans crossing Shark Alley while we had a look at the Cape Fur seals. While around the shark cage diving boats, to see a shark we saw a few blue bottle jellyfish floating by. They are beautiful to see, but you better not touch them as they sting. We were also very blessed to see some of the endangered African penguins on their way back to Dyer Island.

After a great day out at sea with many sightings we are looking forward to another one tomorrow.
