Guide Summary and Photographs

Our tour launched much later than usual due to big swells in the morning; however that didn’t affect our sightings one bit. Cruising along the shallows we sighted Indian Ocean Humpback dolphins playing in the swell. They were playing around very close to the coast. It was quite tricky to get ID photos of these individuals but we were able to identify three out of the five dolphins we encountered, which one of them was ‘Captain Hook’, her calf ‘Big Z’ and ‘Fingers’.

Our skipper steered our Dream Catcher further into the big blue and our guests on board were treated to more dolphin sightings, but this time it was Bottle nose dolphins traveling past us, but it wasn’t long before they disappeared. On our way to Shark Alley we spotted some African penguins and had another glimpse of a Humpback dolphin along a reef system, known as De Clyde. Soon as we arrived in the alley guest had a close encounter with the Cap Fur seals on Geyser Rock. We continued our tour toward the Danger Point Lighthouse. As soon we reached the lighthouse we changed course and were headed back to Kleinbaai harbour.
