When we left our harbour the sea was flat, but the weather conditions changed quickly. Arrived in the Pearly Beach area the sea was still flat, but after a while the wind speed picked up and made our way back choppy. We found two different mother calf pairs in Pearly Beach. The mothers were really relaxed, they did allow the calves between them and our vessel. We also found a small mating group before we made our way towards Geyser Rock and Dyer Island. The seals around Geyser Rock were happily swimming in the cold water and the African penguins were sitting on rocks on Dyer Island. On our way back towards the harbour passed our sister company Marine Dynamics to see a Great White shark. It was nice to be out at sea before another coldfront and storm is comming in tomorrow.
