Guide Summary and Photographs

Big swells with little wind made for a choppy day here in Kleinbaai. We had mostly sunny skies, but the swell prevented us from seeking out our Southern Right whales in the shallows. Instead, we headed all the way to Danger Point looking for humpbacks. After only about ten minutes, we saw something extraordinary: two bull humpbacks competing over one cow. All three displayed some incredible behaviour, one breaching and the other rolling. The two males were very active in their competition. They rammed each other frequently, and made vocalizations unlike anything I’ve ever heard. There was also lots of tail slapping and spouts. They spent nearly all their time at the surface, giving us the privilege of observing this incredibly rare sight. Clearly busy and not at all bothered by our presence, we were able to spend at least thirty minutes watching the three humpbacks before one whale broke off from the group and they swam in different directions. A quick spin around Dyer Island and Shark Alley completed the trip. What a day… – Anna Wolfson
