Guide Summary and Photographs

Today the sky was covered in fog, but the weather didn’t scare the whales away. On the first trip we found a single whale at Sandy Point. The whale was really friendly and approached us several times and was swimming right next to the shark cage diving boats. On the second trip we found the Southern Right whales hanging around in the Pearly Beach area. They showed us a few spy hops and their massive flippers. While we were heading towards Dyer Island we saw a beautiful Cape Gannet and a Giant Petrel. The numerous seals around Geyser Rock were playing in the middle of Shark Alley today. We also spotted again a Penguin in the middle of Cape Fur seals. What a fabulous day.
