Guide Summary and Photographs

We had quite a bit of easterly wind blowing today. We were cruising along the bay and then we did spot a single Indo-Pacific Humpback dolphin. The dolphin surfaced a few times before he did swim away from our vessel. After this sighting we were heading slowly towards Dyer Island, to see some African penguins and some other seabird species, as we roughly can see 27 different species around the island. While slowly cruising through Shark Alley we watched the Cape Fur seals playing in the water o chilling on land. On the way back towards the harbour we came across some Giant Petrel. But beside all the marine animals we had a look at some kelp, which we picked up on the way. What a beautiful day out at sea.
