Daily Trip 14 June 2017

Guide Summary and Photographs

Our first and only trip of the day launched at 1pm today and although the day started off a bit grey and gloomy, the conditions out at sea was perfect by lunch time.

We made our way along the coastline and stopped close to the natural estuary at the Uilenkraalmond area, shortly afterwards we were lucky to spot some dolphins. Although the Bottlenose dolphins were very close to shore we got a glimpse of their dorsal fins as the swell was passing by. Spending some time watching them we continued our journey to Pearly Beach over a reef system where we encountered three African penguins, two adults and a juvenile traveling together.

Continuing our search for whales, Kira, spotted a spout. As we approached the area we saw the blow a Humpback whale came up to the surface for a breath. We were spent a while with this giant of the ocean, before heading to Shark Alley to see the Cape Fur seals. At the end of our trip we passed our sister company Marine Dynamics to see a white shark.
