Guide Summary and Photographs

Due to springtide we launched from Gansbaai harbour. On our way around Danger Point we had a quick look at the lighthouse and passed the famous Birkenhead rock. Further on our way we spotted a blow. We immediately slowed down the vessel and saw the whale coming up again. It was two Humpback whales traveling together towards Danger Point. These two whales have been very relaxed and were traveling alongside our vessel. After watching them for a while we continued with our journey towards the Cape Fur seal colony on Geyser Rock. They were playing in the famous waters of Shark Alley and some others were lazy lying around on land. We also had a glimpse of a Great White shark, once we stopped at a cage diving vessel, but unfortunately they stayed down deeper and didn’t want to break the surface. And not to Forget about the seabirds we saw along the way, African penguins, a skua taking off and many more…
