Dolphins to start and a right whale calf to finish, 06 September, 2019

Today was a marvelous day out at sea! Starting off the morning with a sighting of our endangered Humpback dolphin was absolutely amazing. A mother and calf were traveling together, enjoying the waves along the coastline. Our Bronze whalers were active today and we got to see a few individuals around our shark cage diving vessel, as well as a short glimpse of the Great White shark too! Heading along the coast to Pearly Beach, it wasn’t long before we encountered our first Southern right whales. These two adults seemed to be travelling along together and were an absolute delight to watch. We then went on to see the Cape fur seals lounging and taking a swim around Geyser rock as well as a quick stop at Dyer Island to spot some African penguins.

The Sunfish was an exciting start to the second trip, just a short distance away from the harbour. We got great views of a few bronze whaler sharks before we went on to visit Dyer Island and Geyser rock. Towards the end of our tour, we were lucky enough to spot a mother and calf pair as well as an individual with noticeable white spots on its back travelling together. The calf was rolling around in the waves and attempting to lift its tail out of the water. What an amazing end to the day.
