Guide Summary and Photographs

Today was a good day, we started our trip launching from Gansbaai harbour because of the tide. Sun was shining and we got a bit taste of summer with a medium size swell. Arrived at Dyer Island we got to see a Humpback whale, the same we have seen a few days ago. We are not sure why this juvenile has been hanging around the island but it is definitely a bit unusual. We just hope it is fine and not sick. We also got spoiled by seeing a Southern Right whale with her brindle calf. In Pearly Beach, three Southern Right whale mom and calves came closer to visit our boat. Sometimes we wonder if the mother whales say “Go have a look my child, that is what we call a boat, with humans on!”.
