Guide Summary and Photographs

Today was a complete contrast to yesterday with clear skies and very little swell. A total of 5 Southern Right whales were spotted on this trip with the first encounter just outside of Kleinbaai harbour. We then headed off towards Danger Point where 3 individuals were spotted, 2 males and 1 female. This was our first sighting of a mating group this season. These whales were very active at the surface, often spy-hopping and fin-slapping. We headed towards Dyer Island and paid a visit to Slashfin, our shark cage diving boat. Seeing the great white sharks was just an added bonus for the day. Towards the end of the trip we were lucky enough to spot a mother and calf. Upon our arrival the mother changed course and so as not to disturb the pair any longer we headed back towards the harbour. Yet another great day spent with extraordinary marine animals…- Rosie Bowyer
