Guide Summary and Photographs

Today we had a playful calf and some friendly mothers in our bay. We were heading towards Uilenkrralsmond for our whale watching today. One Southern Right whale calf obviously liked the big swells, it was breaching in the breaching waves. While he was playing around he was opening its mouth so we clearly could see the baleen plates. Arrived in Shark Alley we noticed that many of the Cape Fur seals were out at sea fishing, but there were still plenty of them left to watch. It was a nice day out at sea before another storm is coming in on Friday.
