Once again, we had a whale of a time with some southern right whales in the Pearly Beach area throughout the day. The cow-calf pairs we encountered throughout the day have been great to observe, showing their flukes, breaching and even some close approaches. At Geyser Rock we spotted the first few seal pups and watched the big bulls fighting for their harem of females. At Dyer Island we saw the endangered African Penguin and other seabirds that call the island their home. On the first two trips we also stopped at the shark cage diving boats to see the bronze whaler sharks.

What species did we see today?
Southern Right Whale African Penguin Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphin
Humpback dolphins are an endangered species, with small populations living very close to shore, typically in water less than 25m deep and an average home range of 120km. Their proximity to land makes these animals particularly vulnerable to human influence.
