Guide Summary and Photographs

The sun was shining all day and a warm south easterly wind was blowing. On our first trip, just after launching from the harbour we came across some Cape cormorants the most abundant seabirds in our area. We also were lucky on this trip and got to see a brindle calf with his half brindle mother. The second trip was just as amazing as the first one, we had a mother Soutern Right whale opening her mouth so we could see all the baleen plates. Her little calf was quite playful and tried to swim on its mothers back the whole time. We also saw a Great White shark as well as Cape Fur seals. What a beautiful Monday and start into a new week.
