We had two slightly damp tours out there today but we did not let the rain dampen our spirits! On both tours we got to see our lone calf who today was yet again with another mother and calf on both tours. It is exciting to see three whales together, trying to work out what is going on underwater with this extra calf hanging around. As well as getting great looks at these three, sometimes rolling around together, we also got to see other whales on both tours as well. On trip two we got to see a southern right whale adult breach a couple of times a little distance from the boat, always a special sight.
On both tours we also got to see bronze whaler sharks over by Slashfin with a few sharks around, the African penguins while in Sponge Bay and the crazy number of cape fur seals our on geyser rock. We are starting to see some seal pups born on the island among the throng of adults and the huge bulls. The seal pups look like little black sausages on the island, but it is good to see some starting to be born during this breeding season.
