Guide Summary and Photographs

Today we were launched a slight bit later as per normal and headed straight in the direction of Uilenkraalsmond. After two no sea days there were still some swells running in so we couldn’t go to the shallows. Before heading into deeper waters, we stopped at Slashfin and spotted a Great White Shark.

Unfortunately we didn’t see any wildlife in the deeper waters so we made our way to the world famous Shark Alley, which is the channel between Geyser Rock and Dyer Island,  to see some Cape Fur seals relaxing on Geyser Rock. While we were cruising through the Alley we saw a lot of Cape Cormorants leaving Dyer Island.

On our way back towards the Kleinbaai harbour we were lucky again and got to see an African penguin (Spheniscus demersus). Did you know that this specie was first listed on the IUCN Redlist in 1988?
