Guide Summary and Photographs

We had a stunning day out at sea with great conditions, calm sea and no wind. We were heading along our coastline towards Uilenkraalsmond to see what we can find in the bay. Close to one of the shark cage diving vessels we spotted a Great White shark approaching the cage diving boat. On our way into deeper water we first spotted two African penguins, an adult and one juvenile. Shortly after moving away from the penguins we spotted a blow in the distance. As we approached the whale it came up again, it was a Bryde’s whale. The whale was traveling relaxed alongside our vessel. As it was such a nice day we could see the whales footprint forming on the surface. On our journey back we passed our Cape Fur seal colony on Geyser Rock.
