We had a very friendly Skua on the ride out to Pearly beach today, who kept trying to sit on clients heads and hitch a free ride!  We skimmed passed the shallows this morning and found a Southern Right whale mother calf pair but didn’t want to scare the new calf so we headed over to Pearly beach.  As we reached the bay we could see several Southern Right whales scattered around, it was difficult to decide which ones to watch! They were fluking, and spy hopping all around us, and even giving us some breaches in the distance! We finished off the trip visiting the African penguins, Cape Fur seals and Great White sharks, to complete four of the marine big 5! What a day…
