Guide Summary and Photographs

Another day with some Southern Right whale sightings.

On our first trip we spotted a cow calf pair close to Danger Point. During the second trip we were heading straight to Pearly Beach were we found another pair. This mother and calf pair were super relaxed around our vessel ‘Dream Catcher’. They approached us several times before we had to move off. Arrived in the marine protected area, Dyer Island, we were slowly cruising through shark Alley to have a look at the Cape Fur seals.

On our way back to the harbor we were lucky and got to see the Indian-Ocean humpback dolphins. We also saw some known faces, like “Captain Hook” with her calf “Big Z” as well as a dolphin which hasn’t got a name yet but in our catalogue it is listed as #14.

We had a very exciting day out at sea and are looking forward to see more marine life tomorrow.
