Guide Summary and Photographs

 

Although the sky was covered in clouds and the sea was rough, we still had two amazing trips. On our first trip we spotted two whales in the Franskraal bay area. The whales were friendly, they approached our boat, Whale Whisperer really closely. Our second trip started with a sub Antarctic skua beside the boat and an albatross that surrounding the boat for a while. The albatross was travelling with us, while we were heading towards Pearly Beach. On our way to see the Southern Right whales a Cape gannet passed our way. At Pearly Beach we were lucky and found a mating group of 6 whales. We saw typical mating behaviour, the animals were switching between rolling around and taking a break before picking up the action again. While everybody was busy watching the mating group we spotted some more whales further away. What a lucky day!
