8 September 2016 | Boat Based Whale Watching

Guide Summary and Photographs

Today we only had one trip, but it was great to spend some time out at sea. Before cruising to Pearly Beach we stopped at our sister company to see some Great White sharks. Unfortunately we couldn’t find any Southern Right whales in Pearly Beach today, so we kept moving towards Dyer Island and Geyser Rock.

We passed the Cape Fur seal colony a few times to have a closer look at their playful behaviour. We decided not to give up and scan the area towards Danger Point to find some whales. As soon as we left Shark Alley we spotted a cow calf pair close to a kelp forest. The mother was laying on her back, while the calf was busy playing next to her.

Such a joy to watch them. After that we slowly made our way back to the Kleinbaai harbour.
