Guide Summary and Photographs

It’s hard to describe in words what we have seen today. While cruising through the bay, Kira spotted something in the water a bit further of the boat. We slowly approached and saw a sunfish swimming close to the surface. They are the heaviest known bony fish in the world. It was feeding on some box jellyfish as we have a lot of them in the bay at the moment. After that we were heading towards the cage diving vessels to see a Great White shark. On our way to Dyer Island we spotted lot of Cape Gannets as well as a Bryde’s whale. After seeing the whale we saw lots of Giant Petrel sitting on the water as well as a big raft of African penguins. Geyser Rock was quite empty today but we still saw plenty of Cape Fur seals.
