Guide Summary and Photographs

It was a great day out there on the deep blue. we were lucky enough to spot the entire marine big 5 as well as some beautiful sea birds.

The first sighting came just outside the harbour when our expert whale spotter, Kira, spotted one of our favorite sights, pod of dolphins. we changed course and made our way in their direction, which was closer towards Danger Point. The jumped beautifully, showcasing their stream line bodies before heading off.

Next up, we saw some beautiful Cape Gannets. These guys are a great indicator of fish and where there is fish there is always the chance of seeing a Brydes Whale. And so it was, after a couple of nice views we went to visit our Cape Fur Seals.

Lastly, we stopped at Slashfin where we got to see an active Great White Shark.
