15th August 2016- We've had another string of great cruises with bottlenose dolphin sightings, Cape fur seals, penguins, gannets etc. Twice we found a large pod of dolphins off St Georges Strand, launching through the waves that were hitting the sand (very shallow)! And when they aren't at the beach they are at the island. We've also had some great guests on board, with huge groups of volunteers out from Shamwari Game Reserve! We've had a few whale sightings reported to us, so they are clearly around, we just seem to be missing them still. We are positive that the best is yet to come with whale sightings, so we'll continue to wait patiently and enjoy these spectacular dolphins in the meantime!
