Daily Trip 04 July 2018

Guide Summary and Photographs

We headed off towards Danger Point in the search of whales and had a quick stop to see a couple of African Penguins and an unusual sighting of a Mola Mola. Next thing we knew, a spout was spotted! Off we went to see if we could get a closer look at this charismatic species – the Humpback Whale. Just as we stopped to scout the area, we were greeted by a breach, almost like a big friendly wave. As seen in the photo below, Humpback whales are unique in that they have very long pectoral fins which can be up to a third of their total body length. While watching the Humpback, a Shy Albatross was soaring above. Next stop, we were off to Dyer Island to check out our colony of Cape Fur Seals on Geyser Rock. With a colony of approximately 60,000, the seals never fail to entertain and amuse us. To end our trip, we went to visit our cage diving site where we were lucky to spot a Great White Shark. Overall, a good day, seeing 4 of the Marine Big 5 as well as the Albatross and Mola Mola.
