Guide Summary and Photographs

Our intrepid whale watchers today braved a very wet day to go out and see our lovely Southern Right whales. This part of South Africa desperately needs the rain as they have been in a drought for a long time.

We found a Mother and calf Southern Right whale pair not far from the harbour and after watching them for a short time we moved to Slashfin where we briefly saw a Bronze Whaler shark. After this, we went over to our other whale watching bay in Pearly Beach and there we found a number of mother and calf pairs, one of which was quite active, rolling around and the calf lifted its head and tail out a few times.

At Geyser Rock we saw the incredible Cape Fur Seal colony, which includes a lot of big males right now. Due to the inclement weather there were a lot of seals sitting on the island. Then, in Sponge Bay we got to see a few of our moulting African Penguins, before returning to the Great White House for the warmth of our fires and some nice hot soup.
