Daily Snaps.

A beautiful Half Breach from a Humpback whale.

This was a lone Humpback, and we had a fantastic time watching him.

We even got to see a couple of breaches!

Can you see the whales flipper on the side? Humpback whales have very long flippers, the longest of all the whales in the world.

Travelling along.

It’s always lovely to see the whales just as they surface.

Whale versus water as this beauty pushes through the swell.

Seal watching.

A Great White shark having a look.

We identify sharks using their dorsal fins.

On our second tour, we were treated to the sight of 30 African penguins on the ocean.

This is an incredible find, as they often travel alone.

Watching and waiting.

A seal giving their face a wipe down.

The houses of Dyer Island.

Our bustling colony of 60 000 seals.

Some lovely wave action behind Geyser Rock.

Whale tail! Can you see the barnacles on the tail?

A Humpback whale travelling along.

We’ve been watching mostly Humpback whales recently.

Nice and close to the boat!
