Latest Sightings

23rd June 2015- It is that time of year again when we are joined for a couple of days by the Ulovane students who are on a marine guide course. They were treated to a presentation on Monday evening on the incredible marine life of Algoa Bay and as if the bay felt like it had to live up to expectations it provided a completely magnificent display of wildlife on Tuesday morning. We encountered multiple humpback whales breaching and fin slapping, albatrosses and shearwaters as well as gannets, penguins, terns, cormorants. And then just as we were about to head back to shore.. over a thousand common dolphins charging through the water towards us!
