Guide Summary and Photographs

We headed straight out to Pearly beach this morning to beat the bad weather that is moving in and the Southern Right whales were waiting there for us to join them!  We spotted five different whales in the bay today, being very relaxed and friendly, actually swimming right towards the boat. When we were at Geyser rock we were lucky enough to spot a small nesting group of the endangered Bank cormorant chilling with the seals.  On our way out of Shark Alley we spotted two juvenile African Penguins who appeared to be heading back to Dyer Island.  Just as we were watching the penguins swim by, a Southern Right whale popped up to give us a friendly farewell and the perfect ending to our trip…
