Guide Summary and Photographs

We started our sea safari off with some great sightings of the very endangered humpback dolphins. The slightly overcast conditions made it a great day for viewing the dolphins that made many passes around our boat, often coming very close. There are only an estimated 500 individuals of the species left making this a very special occasion. Over the last few years the Dyer Island Conservation Trust has been working tirelessly to establish a data base of dorsal ID photographs which as used in population estimates of the species to help aid in its recovery. We stayed with the dolphins for a while before we had tip off that a boat in the area had a great white shark.

As we arrived at the shark cage diving site we were almost immediately greet by a very large great white that put on quite a show for us. The shark took us all by surprise by launching itself at the bait line, giving everyone board a glimpse of those famous jaws. After all clients had seen the shark, we moved on towards the Island in hopes of catching a sighting of some African Penguins. Once at the island the crew was able to point out two little penguins on the rocks. As the bay was a bit up and down, we made our way to shark alley to say hello to our 60,00-strong cape fur seal colony. As always the seals are great fun to watch in and out of the water so we stayed with them for a little longer before making our way back to the harbour. A great day at sea and 4 of the Marine Big 5!
