The day started off with blue skies and no wind but later the wind picked up.
Today we weren’t lucky with the Southern Right whales but we had Bryde’s whales on all four trips today. They don’t really have a set migration route in these waters so there is a chance to see them all year round. On the last trip we had a whale of a tail. We first watched a Bryde’s whale and then we spotted splashes a bit further off. As we approached we saw it was three humpback whales lobtailing.
The whales were going on and on, it was such a great pleasure to watch them. The Cape Fur seals were playing in the water around their home, Geyser Rock. We also encountered many different birds. A endangered Black Oyster Catcher on Geyser Rock, some of the endangered African Penguins and a goose on the way out of the harbour.
