Guide Summary and Photographs

This morning was quite misty, but by the time we launched our vessel Dream Catcher the sky cleared up.

As usual we launched from Kleinbaai harbour and our first sighting for the day was a flock of Cape cormorants flying by. We slowed down and watched them flying alongside the vessel. We continued our way towards Uilenkraalsmond and slowly cruised along the coast, where we spotted Indian Ocean humpback dolphins. Two of the dolphins we saw are some of our well known individuals and are regularly seen in the bay.

We also stopped in the area where the shark cage diving boats anchor during our summer months.  Since Slasfin had just got back to sea after a changeover in the harbour, we decided to continue with our tour to give them some time and continued our tour towards Dyer Island. There we saw more Cape cormorants as well some African penguins in between. We also visited the Cape Fur seal colony on Geyser Rock. On our way back to the harbour we stopped at our sister company Marine Dynamics and got to see a beautiful Great White shark.
