Guide Summary and Photographs

Another two amazing hours spent out at sea…

Today we only had one tour scheduled for the day. Around our sister company’s vessel ‘Slashfin’ we got to see a Great White shark. The sharks name is ‘Mini Rosie’, she was actively going for the bait and was showing off nicely. After seeing such an impressive apex predator we moved towards Dyer Island and the Cape Fur seal colony on Geyser Rock. While passing the seal we spotted a juvenile African penguin in between the seals having a good time in the water. On our way around Dyer Island we also saw some Giant petrels sitting on the water and were struggling to take off, they have probably eaten too much and are to heavy now. On the way back home, to the Kleinbaai harbour, we spotted another four adult African penguins.
