Guide Summary and Photographs

Although it was overcast we had an amazing trip out at sea and got to see four out of the Marine Big 5. Our first sightings was a Great White shark around our sister company Marine Dynamics. After seeing such an impressive apex predator we were heading to Dyer Island, where we saw some African penguins. Just before moving away from the island we spotted a juvenile penguin in the water having a bath. As every day we passed the Cape Fur seal colony on Geyser Rock, to see the sharks favourite meal. Before heading back to the Kleinbaai harbour we headed behind the islands and were lucky enough to find a Bryde’s whale and some Giant petrels.
