Guide Summary and Photographs

Today was overcast but in the afternoon the wind picked up and some sunrays made it through the thick layer of clouds. However, the weather didn’t affect our whale sightings today on board the Dream Catcher.

In the morning we were cruising along the coast towards the shark cage diving boats when we spotted a cow calf pair in the shallows. But we decided to move further to Pearly Beach and were lucky to find a couple of whales. Two mothers decided to join up so the calves could play together for a little while.

On the second trip we just launched the boat from Kleinbaai harbour as our spotter, Kira, found another pair of Southern right whale after a few minutes drive. This mother was slowly traveling with her calf towards Danger Point alongside us and she continued heading into this direction even after we left them behind. On the way to Dyer Island we encountered another pair with a playful calf, breaching once and showing its fluke.

As usual we visited Shark Alley to see the Cape Fur seal colony and had a closer look at Dyer Island to see the African penguins. We also made a stop at the shark cage diving vessels and were lucky to see some good bronze whaler shark activity.
