Guide Summary and Photographs

We had two great trips today, the whales started getting more active than the days before. The sun was shining the whole day, although the sea was a bit choppy we had a nice day out at sea. Leaving the harbour we headed towards Pearly beach to find Southern Right whales. On our way we passed the shark cage diving boats to see some sharks on our first trip. When we finally reached Pearly Beach we saw a active bunch of whales, we slowly approached them and watched the mating group. On the second trip we also had an spectacular mating group right next to the boat. The mating group split up, but the whales stayed with us, chilling around the boat peacefully. After spending time with the Southern Right whales we head off towards Dyer Island to see the African penguins and the Cape Fur Seals on Gyser Rock, which is right next to the Island. On the second trip we stopped at our research boat Lwazi to see some Great White sharks. After all our trips we safely arrived back in Kleinbaai harbour. Penguins, seals, sharks and whales, we could not ask for a better day.
