Guide Summary and Photographs

It has been another warm and sunny summers day in the Gansbaai area. Due to low tide we launched from Gansbaai harbour. Before heading around Danger Point, to see the light house, we encountered a Bryde’s whale. The whale surfaced a few times alongside us before changing its direction. So we decided to move on and spotted six African penguins, just as we picked up some speed to move towards Dyer Island and Shark Alley. As soon as we entered the world famous waters where we saw how empty Geyser Rock, home to the Cape Fur seals, was. Passing the Cape Fur seals slowly a few times gave us great opportunities to take some photos and have a closer look. Before heading back to Kleinbaai harbour along the coast we made a stop in the area where they offer the shark cage diving. Unfortunately we haven’t been lucky this time, but tomorrow might look completely different.
