Guide Summary and Photographs

After a no sea day it was still a bit choppy, but the weather did not scare our Southern Right Whales away. Shortly after launching from the Kleinbaai harbour we spotted our first whales. We had many different mother and calf pairs during the day. One calf was active and willing to learn from the mother. The calf was playing around, breaching and slapping with the fluke. During the day we also spotted some Indo-Pazific Humpback dolphins swimming around our vessel. We also stopped at Geyser Rock and cruised around Dyer Island. On the Island we spotted a few African penguins between many Cape cormorants. What are we gonna see tomorrow?
