Guide Summary and Photographs

What an exciting day aboard our vessel Whale Whisperer. Just outside the harbour we spotted a juvenile African penguin. After having a quick look at the little one we were heading towards Dyer Island were we got to see more penguins between all the Cape cormorants. Our next stop was in Shark Alley were we watched all the Cap Fur seals on Geyser Rock. Some of them were playing in the water, whilst others were sleeping on the rocks. On the way to our sister company marine Dynamics, to see some sharks we cruised by some Cape gannets. On the way back to Kleinbaai, while cruising in shallow water we spotted another Great White shark, which we know well. Her name is Rosie, we had her cruising by the shark cage diving vessel before. We also spotted some Indian-Ocean humpback dolphins were the waves start breaking. And just before we reached the harbour we were surprised by a blow of a Bryde’s whale. We saw the whale taking a few breaths before he took a deeper dive. On the way into the harbour we got to see a Common Whimbrel and a Bank cormorant. What a memorable day with the Marine Big 5 and more.
