We could not had a better trip today…

After launching, we headed straight for Dyer Island, as we had some little passengers on board (eighteen African penguins). The penguins have been at the African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary for rehabilitation and after a few weeks they were healthy again and ready to be released back into the wild. After the penguins release we visited Geyser Rock, home to the Cape Fur seal, located just behind Dyer Island. The group also got to see nine Giant Petrels sitting on the water, such beautiful birds with a big wingspan. And just before heading back into the harbour we spotted four Indo-Pacific Humpback dolphins. We definitely could not have had a better day out at sea.
