Another great day in whale season after another no sea day.

Although we still had some swells running in there was no wind and the sun was shining. We launched at 11 o’clock and were heading as usual along the coast towards the shark cage diving boats. Cruising along the coast in shallow waters we were looking out for some Humpback dolphins as we haven’t see them in a while, but unfortunately we haven’t been very lucky. We passed our sister company Who offer the shark cage diving on our way to Pearly Beach where we had a look out for the whales. As it turned out to be quiet this side of the bay we made stop at Dyer Island and Geyser Rock to see the Cape Fur seals before heading into deeper water to find some more wildlife activity. And we didn’t got disappointed with two Humpback whales just behind Geyser Rock. Besides the whales we spotted two Shy albatross and some Sooty shearwater as well as some Cape gannet. We were traveling alongside these animals for a while before our skipper spotted a big splash further out in deeper water. However, we left these two whales behind and were moving towards the big splash where we found another two Humpback whales. How lucky. Spending some time around these two animals we got to see another breach! Happy with what we got to see we returned to port.
