Guide Summary and Photographs

The day started of sunny, but the clouds appeared soon and some westerly wind was blowing.

On our way to Dyer Island and Geyser Rock, we spotted a lot of seabirds. We saw Cape gannets, Cory shearwater, a Giant Petrel and Cape cormorants. After watching the birds we were heading towards Dyer Island to also see the African penguins.

As every day we went headed to Geyser Rock to see all the Cape Fur seals. All the little pups, born in December, are getting bigger and bigger every week. Due to some westerly wind we couldn’t go too far behind the island and some rain was coming towards us as well. We still had a great time out at sea and arrived back in the Kleinbaai harbour safely and a little wet.
