Guide Summary and Photographs

Even with the choppy water the Southern Right whales were easy to find. The first pair we came across was a mother and calf. After spending time with them we moved on, for we spotted a male and female Southern Right whale. As July marks the start of their mating season it is likely that the male was trying to impress the female. Another whale was spotted along Pearly Beach but each of these encounters was brief, with the whales spending minimal time at the surface.  We then made our way to Geyser Rock and Dyer Island to see if we could spot some seals and penguins. Upon reaching Dyer Island we encountered a large great white around 3.5m at our sister boat Slashfin, (Marine Dynamics). Whales, sharks and seals just made for a great day out on Whale Whisperer…-Rosie Bowyer (Marine Volunteer)
