Guide Summary and Photographs

Summer is known here to have a lot of south easterly wind, so we did have some today as well.

After a stop close to the estuary of Uilenkraalsmond we made our way slowly to the shark cage diving vessel. We spend there a little while in hopes to see some sharks. Further on we passed a reef system named “De Clyde” by the locals, where we picked up some kelp, which became loose and was just floating around.

Before making a stop in Shark Alley to see the Cape Fur seal colony on Geyser Rock, we made a big turn into deeper water to try and find a whale. Unfortunately we haven’t been in luck and took a drive behind the islands to Danger Point after seeing all the playful seals in the water and the lazy ones sleeping on land. Close to Danger Point we spotted a sunfish floating at the surface, we approached carefully and had a closer look at the strange looking fish.
