Guide Summary and Photographs

We were slowly leaving the Kleinbaai harbour thought the small channel this morning. And then we were heading straight towards Danger Point and into deeper water. Out there we found amazing animals, we had a glimpse of a traveling Humpback whale. The whale was obviously on a mission as it came up only a few times before heading off. We also spotted a Yellow-nosed albatross, beautiful seabirds! Also a White chinned Petrel crossed our way. While heading towards Dyer Island, our skipper turned suddenly the boat around as he spotted another blow. As we approached the whale we saw that this time it was a Bryde’s whale, how lucky to see two different species of whales in one trip. Finally arrived in the Dyer Island protected area we had a closer look at the Cape Fur seals on Geyser Rock and also went to see the endangered African penguins on Dyer Island. After seeing all these amazing things we stopped by the Geldsteen. The winter dive site for the shark cage diving vessels and got to see some great activity around ‘Slashfin’ our sister companys vessel.
