Guide Summary and Photographs

It was a sunny day in Gansbaai and the surroundings but during the day the wind picked up and caused a little bit of chop on the water.

As usual our first stop was close to Uilenkraalsmond where we spotted a little African penguin swimming by itself. Further we passed our sister company in the hope to have a quick look at a bronze whaler or great white shark. On our way to Dyer Island we passed a reef system going to the island all the way from mainland. While driving over the kelp forest there we also picked some of the brown algae up and had a closer look and feel. As we were heading to see the Cape Fur seal, Kira, our wildlife spotter saw a spout just behind Geyser Rock. And we have been lucky to see a Bryde’s whale coming up for some breaths several times in a row.

On the second trip of the day we spotted another penguin close to the area where we have encountered the first one. After having a look at the bird we continued and passed the area with all the shark cage diving boats but unfortunately our sister company was in the harbour for a change over so we continued the same route to Dyer Island and made another stop Slashfin towards the end of our tour. Around the island we took course straight into Shark Alley and watched the Cape Fur seals for a while.
