Guide Summary and Photographs

After a no sea day it was good to be back on the water. On our first trip it was still overcast, but the sun was shining for us the rest of the day. After launching from the Kleinbaai harbour we were heading straight to Pearly Beach, where we found our Southern Right whales. In the morning we had a few mothers with their calves and an active mating group later on. One whale in the mating group was special, he was a brindle Southern Right whale. When the brindle whales are born they are white, but over the years they will change their skin colour to grey. Some of the Cape Fur seals were swimming in Shark Alley today and having a look at us while we were passing them. On our way back to the harbour we spotted  African penguins on Dyer Island and Cape gannets flying passed us.
