Guide Summary and Photographs

Just before we launched the sky cleared up. We had two amazing trips out at sea, with all marine big 5. In the bay close to Uilenkraalsmond we spotted the humpback dolphins hunting for fish. It wasa big group of dolphins on our second trip, the juveniles were playing together while their mothers were hunting for their own fish. Around our sister company Marine Dynamics we got to see a Great White shark passing up and down in front of their cage. Penguins in the ocean everywhere today, especially on our second trip. But we also got to see some African penguins on Dyer Island itself. Most of the Cape Fur seals were playing in the water as it was a nice sunny day. We also spotted a few Bryde’s whales.
