Guide Summary and Photographs

The day started off a bit overcast, but the weather definitely improved and by midday we had sunny skies.

We had great whale activity throughout the day. We managed to find Southern Right whales in the Pearly Beach area as well as the Danger Point region.

In Pearly Beach we had an active mating group going on for hours. We also had a beautiful whale in the morning, showing off its white chin.

The Cape Fur seals were as lazing around and they were playful as per usual during our visits to Geyser Rock. We also managed to spot a group of African penguins leaving Dyer Island in the morning and some single ones swimming in the big ocean during the day.

We definitely had a whale of a time today!
