Guide Summary and Photographs
Well, I’ll start by saying that it was the most diverse whale trip in six years, or so I’ve been told! We spotted a mother-calf pair of three different whale species (Southern Right, Humpback, and Bryde’s) all in about two hours. That doesn’t even count the thousands of Cape Fur seals and Cape cormorants we saw, along with the occasional African penguin. What other evidence can I provide to attest to the fact that I must be a good luck charm? Well, let’s see; we saw a fully-grown Humpback whale breach repeatedly – not once, not twice, not even three times, I counted 17 continuous breaches over the course of about 30minutes. In fact, there might have been more, as we had to leave the breaching whale before the air display was over in order to make sure the clients didn’t miss their transport! A huge thank you to Dickie & the whale crew for an amazing day… – Hunter Stanely (Marine Volunteer)
