Guide Summary and Photographs
Today was a nice, sunny day out on the water and we left the harbour at 10:15, very excited for the trip ahead.
Shortly after our departure, we were visited by a Sub Antarctic Skua, these birds have become a favourite amongst our guests due to the fact that they fly alongside the boat, giving them a great, close-up, view of their impressive 1.3m wingspan.
Our next sighting was of a Great White Shark at the shark cage diving vessels. These beautiful creatures get their name from their white under-bellies and are always a treat to see. Our sister company’s boat, Slashfin, had one shark investigate the bait while we lay adjacent to her. This gave us the opportunity to catch a glimpse of that famous white shark dorsal fin.
Next, we visited our African Penguins on Dyer Island. We watched these clumsy little fellows waddle around on the rocks for a little, much to the delight of one of our younger clients. It is aalways amazing to think that despite their awkward appearance on land, these birds are amazing swimmers and proficient hunters.
After his, we passed by the seals a couple of times before heading back to the Great White House for some Delicious soup and a sandwich or two.
