Guide Summary and Photographs

It was another day with beautiful weather.

On our morning trip we were as usual hugging the coastline to see what we can spot. As we arrived at the reef system named De Clyde, Kira, our wildlife spotter spotted a blow. As we slowly approached we saw it was a lonely Southern Right whale. We stayed with the whale for a while before heading towards Dyer Island.

On the second trip we spotted a traveling Humpback whale behind Geyser Rock. On the last two trips we weren’t lucky, we didn’t spot any whales. We were scanning our whole permitted area from Quin Point to Danger Point, but there was not even a single blow. We managed to spot two Humpback dolphins in Pearly Beach and also had an encounter with a Cape Fur seal a bit further away from its colony feeding on an octopus.
