Guide Summary and Photographs

Perfect day again, to be out on the water! On our first trip we haven’t been as lucky as on our second one but we still had an amazing time. We were cruising through the bay and got to see Cape Fur seals, African penguins and a Great White shark. On our second trip we spotted the humpback dolphins in the bay they must have moved in in the meantime. We also saw some familiar ones, Captain Hook and her calf BigZ as well as Fingers. Passing the shark cage diving vessel of our sister company, we got to see a shark before heading towards Dyer Island to see penguins and some Cape Fur seals on Geyser Rock. As it was such a lovely day we decided again to make a big turn behind the Island to see if we can spot some whales on this trip. And yes, we were lucky this time and encountered a Bryde’s whale. After a successful trip with the marine Big 5 we were heading back towards Kleinbaai to have some nice warm soup.
