The swells were prominent out on the water today, but the whales loved them!  We found two Southern Right whales in the Pearly beach area; they were rolling in the large swells letting the water crash over them, giving us a nice view of their speckled bellies.  The wind made for some great bird action, having both a Giant petrel and a Shy albatross glide past our boat as we made our way to Geyser rock.  We were also fortunate enough to spot the two most endangered seabirds, the African Oyster Catcher and the Bank cormorant. It was a great day in the sun…
