Guide Summary and Photographs

On our first trip today we made our way to Danger Point where we passed the famous Birkenhead rock for a short history lesson. But this is also the area where we have been seeing a lot of migrating Humpback whales lately. A few kilometre deeper, we spotted 5 beautiful Humpback whales traveling together. Taking about three to four breaths they picked up their flukes every time they made a deeper dive, giving our clients a perfect photo opportunity.

On our second trip we found some more Humpback whales which led us in the direction of a pod of Common dolphins. At first the dolphins were really scattered but then all around the boat, bow riding, spy hopping and leaping out of the water. Squeals and clicks from the dolphins could be heard from the cabin.

We ended our trip with seals, a sunset over Kleinbaai and smiles.
