20 December 2016 | Bird Watching Gansbaai

Guide Summary and Photographs

The bay was full of marine life again.

We spotted some African penguins swimming in the water and some more sitting on Dyer Island. A lot of the Cape Fur seal on Geyser Rock were having a swim in the water too. Around the Dyer Island Nature Reserve we spotted a lot of feeding Giant petrels. Always a great treat to see these huge pelagic birds in our area. On our way out of the world famous Shark Alley, our wildlife spotter spotted a blow. We approached the area were we saw the spout accordingly and were lucky to encounter a Bryde’s whale. The whale surfaced a few times before disappearing in deep water. On our way back we stopped at Marine Dynamics, our sister company, who offer the Great White shark cage diving.
