Guide Summary and Photographs

Mother nature is always up for a surprise. Shortly after launching our vessel Dream Catcher from the harbour we spotted some Humpback dolphins. We slowly approached them and soon they were all around our boat. We saw three mothers with their babies and a few more dolphins around. Before heading towards Dyer Island we stopped at our sister company Marine Dynamics to see a Great White shark. Arrive at Dyer Island we saw some African penguins and Cape Fur seals on Geyser Rock. It’s getting more and more big bulls on Geyser Rock as well as more pups. On the way back home we were surprised and found a dead whale floating behind the island. As we approached the dead whale we saw lots of Petrel feeding on it.
