Guide Summary and Photographs

Today’s sea safari was filled with awesome sightings, in some great weather and conditions. On board our trusty whale watching vessel, Dream Catcher, our journey began scouting The Shallows for our elusive dolphin species, the Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphin. Once again, our skipper spotted a small pod of these dolphins playing in the surf. These same dolphins have been seen for the last few days and have definitely warmed up to us and the boat. They started to perform for us by surfacing meters away from us and one even went that extra mile by lob-tailing, everyone on board was awestruck by these usually shy animals. We then headed over De Clyde reef towards Pearly Beach where most of our whale watching takes place in the winter months. Unfortunately for us, it seems as though the whales have not arrived yet and after a thorough search we headed towards Dyer Island. As we pulled into sponge bay we spotted 5 African penguins waddling on top of the island, we could not believe our luck as these penguins are often very hard to point out. Within Shark Alley we said hello to our 60,000-strong colony of cape fur seals, as well as a few giant petrels. This was out last sighting of the day as we headed back towards the harbour.
