Guide Summary and Photographs

The morning started off with beautiful calm seas and a magnificent sunrise over the mainland.

Soon after we launched from the Kleinbaai harbour we changed direction and were headed towards Uilenkraalsmond, which has proven to be the right choice. One of our crew members spotted a sub-adult Southern Right whale. At the end of the first trip we spotted a “weird” looking fish, a sunfish just in front of the harbour.

During our second trip we wasn’t so lucky as during our first ‘seafari’ we couldn’t find any whales. we scanned the whole area but there wasn’t a single blow.

On the third trip for the day we scanned the bay towards Danger Point and at the island we encountered two Southern Right whales traveling alongside the vessel. On the last trip for the day Kira, our wildlife spotter, spotted two Humpback whales in deeper water. It was amazing to travel alongside them and watch their behaviour.

The Cape Fur seals we visit every day were laying on Geyser Rock as always, but some of them had a good time bathing in Shark Alley.
