Guide Summary and Photographs

The conditions today were nice, only a fair bit of wind and flat water.

Our Indian Ocean Humpback dolphins were in the shallows and one of them was slapping its fluke on the surface, probably saying ‘Hello’. In Pearly Beach we still have a few cow and calf pairs, and one calf was a beautiful brindle. Only 4% of the Southern Right whale are born white and will become darker gray with age. We found a Cape Fur seal eating a huge octopus on the way to Shark Alley, always fun to see them throwing their pray up in the air to break pieces off. We got to release a African penguin at Dyer Island, that was a very happy to be back after a long 3 months of recovering at the African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary due to a very bad seal bite. Seeing the penguin torpedo through the water was very rewarding and reminded us just once again why we love our jobs so much!
