Guide Summary and Photographs

Today was just incredible, I can’t find the right words to describe what we have seen today. After launching from the harbour we were heading straight to Pearly Beach. We were busy observing  a mother with her calf when we saw two adults breaching in the distance at the same time. We slowly moved off  the mother and her youngster and approached the breaching adults. It is always amazing to see these creatures breaching, especially that close. On our second trip we found the some more Southern Right whale mothers with their calves. One calf was really special it was brindle, it means it has a white skin colour all over. We did also spot some African penguin on Dyer Island and thousands of Cape Fur seals on Geyser Rock. Such an amazing day which I will never forget.
