Guide Summary and Photographs

The good sea conditions just continue. On our rout through the shallow areas close to the coast and to Dyer Island we spotted a few African penguins in the water. We also passed our shark cage diving boats but unfortunately we didn’t get to see a white shark. Also the shark activity is still a bit slow after their disappearance due to the orca sighting in the bay. Arrived at Dyer Island we got to see lots of Cape cormorants and swift terns flying above the buildings on the island. We also went a bit closer to the 20hectar island to see if we can spot a few more penguins in between all the cormorants.

Arrived in Shark Alley we saw lots of seals in the water and they were as playful as every day. On the way to find some whales we spotted more seals proposing and heading into deeper water. We also spotted lots of Sooty shearwaters, they were running on the flat sea before taking off and gliding in the air. Kwezi, our wildlife spotter for today, found us two Bryde’s whale. One of them was quite curious and passed our vessel very nice and close.
