Guide Summary and Photographs

We have been spoiled by mother nature today. During our eco tour we encounter all Marine Big 5 again. The first sightings of the day were three Humpback dolphins traveling along the coastline towards the next bay. After observing them for a little while we were heading towards the shark cage diving vessels. Arrived at our sister company Marine Dynamics we immediately had a shark around. It was a big Great White shark over 3 meters, the shark was quite curious and approach our vessel to investigate. After having a look at the African penguins on Dyer Island and the Cape Fur seals in Shark Alley we were heading back to the Kleinbaai harbour. Halfway home, Kira spotted a blow in the distance. We slowly approached the whale and were really lucky to have such an close encounter with a Bryde’s whale.
