Guide Summary and Photographs

Today we still had some wind blowing, but the swell dropped and we had a great time out at sea. We were heading along the coastline towards a reef system called De Clyde. We decided to pass the reef between the kelp forrest to have a look what we can spot on the other side, but it has been a little quiet so we decided to continue our trip and have a look at the Cape Fur seals. We passed Geyser Rock, their home, a few times to take a closer look as well as some photos. As usual we stopped closer to Dyer Island to see some African penguins. And just around the island we came across some more penguins swimming in the water. Looked like that they were on their way home after a long trip out sea fishing. Before heading back to the harbour we decided to go towards Danger Point and it was definitly worth it, as we spotted a Bryde’s whale. We had a few glimpse of the spout and its dorsal fin, before the whale disappeared again in the deep ocean.
