Guide Summary and Photographs

Seems like whale season is starting early this year, because we saw four Southern Right whales today! We had incredible weather today despite the fact that it’s winter- the sun was shining, the bay was calm, and the visibility was so high we could see straight to the bottom. We started our trip in the shallows and within only a few minutes we had spotted our first Southern Right. This whale was incredibly relaxed and gave us a great show with lots of tail slapping and blows. After spending quite a bit of time with our first whale, we moved on to a second, far more shy Southern Right who only gave us a few minutes of its time before doing a deep dive. We then got a call from Hennie, skipper of our sister company’s boat Slashfin, saying that they’d spotted a humpback whale not far from their boat. We made our way in that direction and though we did see a spout, the humpback eluded us. After a quick trip around Dyer Island and through Shark Alley (we spotted a single African Penguin spending time with the seals on Geyser Rock) we turned towards the harbour when we encountered one final surprise- a pair of adult Southern Rights cruising together! They were quite calm around the boat, and gave us the luxury of a v-shaped water spout and many photo ops before we headed back. A great day to the start of the whale season…
