Guide Summary and Photographs

We got a fantastic welcome back from the whales today after a week of no sea days due to bad weather. We had our first Southern Right calf sightings of the season and it was not one but two mother calf pairs!  We then moved on to Pearly Beach and found what we believe was a small mating group of Southern Right whales, who then gave us some nice breaches.  On our way back to Dyer Island we were joined by three Humpback whales passing through the area, one of which had a damaged dorsal fin that looked to have been caused by a large ship’s propeller. We ended with Geyser rock where the large colony of Cape Fur seals were relaxing in the sun.  It was great to be back on the water at last…
