The meaning of ‘breach’, to rise and break through the surface of the water.

We had a bit of a slow start with the whales in Pearly Beach, but it didn’t take long for a whale to show off and started breaching, giving everyone the opportunity to take some nice photos. Seeing a 80ton animal hitting the surface of the water for the first time this whales season was truly amazing. On our way to the island we found a Mola mola, commonly known as a sunfish who gave us a very nice look, even stuck his head out of the water. A visit at the Cape Fur seal colony as usual and the next stop was at the shark cage diving boats to see the seals natural predator. Unfortunatly we haven’t been lucky today. By the end of our trip the wind was howling and we started heading back to the harbour with a smile on our faces and tangled hair.
