Guide Summary and Photographs

The day started of with loads of sunshine, a calm ocean and so where the whales we spotted in the bay.

Our first three trips we spent alongside a mother and her calf between the coast and Dyer Island. They have been very relaxed around out boat all day long. The mother was beautiful and had three distinct white patches on her back. Her calf was quite big already but never left the mother’s side.

On our daily routine around Dyer Island we spotted the African penguin and had a look at the Cape Fur seals on Geyser Rock. On the second and third trip our clients were spoiled with a Humpback whale encounter close to the Dyer Island Nature Reserve area. And not to forget about the Humpback dolphins we sighted on the second cruise for the day.

During the last trip for the day we went to Pearly Beach and found three groups of Southern Right whales. We were very lucky, as a calf approached our vessel super close and we could even see its eye underwater looking at us.
