Guide Summary and Photographs

We managed to spot four of the Marine Big 5 on both trips today! We visited the cage diving boats first and while the sharks weren’t breaching for us they instead came and swam right around our boat, so we could get a nice look! We found two friendly Southern right whales in the Pearly beach area; they seemed to be playing hide and seek as they kept diving down and popping up in a different position, but they couldn’t fool Kira as his incredible spotting capability kept up with their movement.  On our way to visit the seals and penguins we were lucky enough to spot a shy albatross who was soaring over the swells right next to our boat, it was a bird lover’s heaven! Always a great day spotting for wildlife…
