Guide Summary and Photographs

We had an amazing surprise this Sunday morning.

During our usual stop at Uilenkraalsmond for data collection, we spotted Indian Ocean Humpback dolphins. It was a group of five dolphins, two juveniles and three adults. The dolphins were super relaxed around our boat and some were busy hunting after some mullets. After spending some time with these marine mammals we continued to our Cape Fur seal colony on Geyser Rock. We managed to spot a little African penguin closer to Dyer Island. On the way back to mainland we made turn towards Danger Point and we got rewarded with an amazing sighting of a Bryde’s whale. The whale was surfacing several times close to the boat.

We truly had an amazing trip.
