Guide Summary and Photographs

Today we were launching at 10 o’clock from the Kleinbaai harbour and were heading along the coast towards Uilenkraalsmond. Unfortunatly the bay was quiet and we decided to head straight to the Dyer Island Nature Reserve. On the way there we spotted a juvenile African Penguin next to our vessel. We slowly passed the penguins home, Dyer Island and made our way to the world famous Shark Alley. There we passed our Cape Fur seal colony. A lot of them were lying on the Rocks and some others decided to cool down in the water, which was today at 15°C in the Alley. After seeing these marine mammals in their natural habitat we went into deeper water and were lucky to have a glimpse of a shy Bryde’s whale. Towards the end of our tour we made a stop by the shark cage diving boats, were we got to see a Great White shark.
