Guide Summary and Photographs

This morning we launched our boat Whale Whisperer for the first tour.

We saw three African penguins close to Uilenkraalsmond in the water and some more later on during the trip on Dyer Island. On both eco Marine Big 5 tours today we got to see a Great White shark around our sister company’s vessel Slashfin. We also had a look at the sharks favourite meal the Cape Fur seals.

On our second trip we were lucky to find a sunfish basking at the surface. Adults will spend most of their time submerged in deeper water. We also spotted Giant petrels and as usual it is always great to see these large seabirds.
