Guide Summary and Photographs

We set off today in almost perfect conditions and headed along the shallows towards Pearly Beach in search of the Right Whales we saw the previous day. Instead we happened to stumble across a large raft of African Penguins. In large groups these penguins tend to be calmer around large vessels and offered us some great sightings before we moved in pursuit of some whale spouts in the distance. There was clear indication of plenty of fish in the area as we spout multiple spouts, cape fur seals and plenty of gorgeous bird species hunting.

The whales we eventfully caught up to very close together and very cooperative with the vessel. The two whales were our resident Bryde’s Whales that follow the movement off fish up and down the coasts.  With some beautiful sightings, we left our whale friends to get on with their day as we headed over towards the Dyer Island System.

On our journey back, we spotted some stunning juvenile and adult Cape Gannets, as well as a lone Sooty Shearwater. As we reached the island, it was quite empty as most of the adults may have been out fishing. The remainder of the seals on Geyser Rock gave us a brilliant show offing an amazing insight into a small portion of their daily lives. What an excellent day on the water filled with some amazing wildlife!
