Guide Summary and Photographs

After a few days on land it was great for all of us to be back at sea. Due to some swells in the morning and low tide we launched once again from Gansbaai harbour. Although it was overcast it has been a lovely day with barely any wind. On our first trip for the day we didn’t had to search for long to find some Southern Right just of Danger Point. After spending time with these whales and a close approach from the animals we continued our tour towards Dyer Island, but before we could even speed up we spotted a sunfish.

Arrived at the Island we passed the Cape Fur seals colony on Geyser Rock and were slowly cruising through the world famous Shark Alley.

On the second and last tour for the day we were heading to Dyer Island and Shark Alley before sailing towards Pearly Beach. There we found three entertaining Southern Right whales very close to our vessel. The whales were having a whale of a time, playing with some kelp, a brown algae species that grows along the Atlantic coast of Southern Africa. The whales were showing off by rolling on their backs and showing a parts of their flukes, truly blessed.

On both trips we stopped at our sister company Marine Dynamics trying our luck to see a Great White shark.
