Guide Summary and Photographs

 

From breaching whales to spy hops and flukes we saw a wide range of the Southern Right whale behaviour. We slowly approached the breaching whale and he continued breaching in front of us. After a few breaches he slapped his flipper to the surface and breached again for us after a few minutes of rest. We also saw some more breaching whales in the distance, there must haven been something in the water today because the whales were really active. We also spotted a few mating groups and a beautiful brindle whale. One of the whales approached us and swam under our boat to have a look at our boat Whale Whisperer. Peacefully he swam away and joined the other Southern right whales again. We also had a look at the friendly Cape Fur seals on Geyser Rock and spotted African penguins on Dyer Island. Amazing day!
