Guide Summary and Photographs

After two no sea days we still had some swells running in, but we had a great trip out at sea today. We launched early this morning and were heading straight out into deeper water to see what we can spot. First we spotted a few African penguins, but they were a bit tricky to see because of the swell and they also sometimes quite skittish of boats. We were just about to move when two albatross did approach our vessel. One of them was a shy albatross, beautiful seabirds with an impressive wingspan over two meter. Arrived at Dyer Island we were cruising through the world famous called Shark Alley. While slowly passing Geyser Rock we managed to see thousands of Cape Fur seals. Some were playing in the water others were laying lined up on the Ship wreck. After taking some successful pictures of these adorable sea mammal we were heading around the island again towards our sister company were we tried our luck to see a Great White shark.
