Guide Summary and Photographs

As soon as we arrived in Pearly Beach we saw some new faces. Today we had two familiar mother and calf pairs we know from the previous days as well as a new pair. The new mother had beautiful white callosities.

The whales were very curious once again and approached us very closely. On our last trip for the day we got surprised by some Bottlenose dolphins, while heading towards our Southern Right whales. The dolphins were bow riding and jumping close to our vessel, what a joy to see that.

The mating season of the Cape Fur seals has already started, there are more and more big bulls on the Island. And we already spotted some new born pups today.
