Guide Summary and Photographs

Although we had some swell running into the bay, we managed to have some great sightings of marine life.

First we made a stop at our sister company, to see a great white shark. It was a big shark circling the their vessel a few times before it tried to get hold of the bait line. After having a good look at these apex predators we made our way into deeper water to see what else we can spot. As we stopped our vessel to look at two albatross gliding over the ocean, we saw two Southern Right whales coming up behind our vessel. It was great to see them around as it is early for the Southern Right whale season, hopefully some more move into our area soon. They were traveling slowly alongside our vessel and came several times up for a breath. While waiting for the whales to Surface we were watching the seabirds around us, besides the albatross we saw Sooty shearwaters and Sub-Antarctic skuas.

On our way back towards Kleinbaai we stopped in Shark Alley to see the Cape Fur seal colony and some African penguins.
