Guide Summary and Photographs

Today we headed out to see what we can find in the bay. It was a sunny day with a very light breeze blowing. During our two trips we spotted a lot of marine wildlife. In total we saw four different Great White sharks very close to the beach, patrolling up and down. The sharks were cruising peacefully where the weaves start breaking. After looking at the sharks we also had a look at their favorite pray item the Cape Fur seals.

On both trips the first sighting for the day was an African penguin close to Franskraal and later on we saw some more on Dyer Island. Around the island we found some Swift terns having a bath in the cold ocean.
