Guide Summary and Photographs

During the whole day we had some wind from the south east and plenty of whales.

On the first trip we have been lucky and spotted two different cow calf pairs just in front of Franskraal. They were very relaxed around our boat and we had some great looks at them.

On the second trip we were cruising along the coast on our way to Pearly Beach as we spotted some Southern Right whales close to a reef, going all the way to Dyer Island. They were entertaining us well, especially the little calf opening its mouth and showing is its baleen. Further in Pearly Beach we spotted some more cow calf pairs. And it looked like its cleaning baleen day, as another whale was opening its mouth, flushing some water through their filters.

On the third trip we cruised straight after a visit at the shark cage diving boats to Pearly Beach. Arrived in our whale watching destination we encountered another three cow calf pairs. And how lucky we were to end this day with a breaching calf.

All our trips ended passing Dyer Island and with a stop at the Cape Fur seal colony.
