Guide Summary and Photographs

The day started off a bit overcast and some light rain but the sky cleared up very soon.

We launched as usual from the Kleinbaai harbour, made our way along the coast to the shark cage diving boats in the hope to see a shark. But shortly afterwards made our way to Pearly Beach, as it has been quiet today. Arrived in the Pearly Beach area we found couple of cow calf pairs. Some Southern Rights were in shallow waters of less than 5 meters and rolling around in the swell. A few others were in a bit of deeper water and traveling relaxed alongside our vessel, Dream Catcher. After watching these gentle giants in their natural habitat, we continued towards the Dyer Island Nature Reserve.

There we always visit the Cape Fur seal colony on Geyser Rock and try to see some African penguins on Dyer Island itself. We did spend another great day out at sea and looking forward to some more sightings tomorrow.
