Guide Summary and Photographs

The Southern Right whales were being VERY active today! We saw a whole array of whale behaviour from spy hopping and breaching calves to lots of tail slaping…. We were even fortunate enough to watch a calf opening its mouth through the swells, a rare sight indeed! Of course we can’t forget the classic mother-calf pair resting at the surface.  We had to travel into the wind to reach Geyser Rock where we watched all the Cape Fur seals playing in the water.  Our luck continued when we were treated to a special sighting of a Cape Fur seal feeding in the water, on what appeared to be a kelp shark. It definitely was an awesome day… – Yvonne Nuessing + Roxane Kadjar (Marine Volunteers)
