Guide Summary and Photographs

It was another great day in the bay although the wind was picking up during the day. We launched this morning from the Gansbaai harbour due to spring tide. We were lucky and spotted our first whales while cruising around Danger Point towards Dyer Island. We had a beautiful calf with white patches all over its back.

On our second trip for the day we spotted a cow-calf pair right outside the Kleinbaai harbour and on the last trip of the day we had an encounter with two pairs in the Pearly Beach area. The calves in the bay are getting bigger and bigger, they also getting slowly but surely a bit more playful.

We also saw some sharks during the day in the area where they offer the shark cage diving. We stopped on two trips at our sister company Marine Dynamics and afterwards we had a look at their favourite meal, the Cape Fur seals on Geyser Rock.
