Guide Summary and Photographs

On another beautiful South African morning we set off on Whale Whisperer. We headed off towards Pearly Beach to find our whales. It was not long before a humpback mother and calf were spotted. The calf’s small size indicates it is only a couple of weeks old and stayed close to its mother’s side. During this encounter we spotted a Southern Right whale just a few meters ahead. We quickly moved to investigate this new whale but it was very elusive, only surfacing a few times. We circled back to the humpback pair for a few moments before leaving the bay. On our way towards Dyer Island we saw a whale in the distance but it disappeared before we could approach it. While the whales were shy today the sight of a baby humpback whale was enough to make the trip an unforgettable experience…-Rosie Bowyer (Marine Dynamics)
