Guide Summary and Photographs

First time in a while that we did spot all Marine Big 5. It di start with the Humpback dolphins close to Uilenkraalsmond. It was the same group we saw yesterday. We know all the individuals very well and we also named some of them. Around the shark cage diving vessels in the area we saw a Great White shark and on the way to the island we spotted a Bryde’s whale. We couldn’t go closer to Dyer Island itself but we saw two African penguins in the water. And the last one of the Big 5, the Cape fur seals, we found a few thousand of them on Geyser Rock. What a nice start into the weekend. Looking forward to another fantastic day tomorrow.
