Dyer Island and Africa's real "Big Five”


Checking back in from wintery South Africa at the very southern tip of the continent. Staying in the tiny village of Kleinbaai which is the white shark cage diving capital of the world. On a beautiful winter day logged the following images of the area's "Big Five" - the southern right whale, bottle nose dolphin, African penguin, cape fur seal & the magnificent great white shark. This area is truly beautiful and I have made a note to come back again. Of note the shark cage diving operations have moved into the shallower waters nearer the beach to find their finned targets. Unusual for the sharks to move away from the Geyser island"alley" normally quite active in the winter months.

Southern Right Whale in full breach

Still sorting through the incredible experience had with Chris and Monique Fallows at Seal Island in False Bay during the past two weeks. Will be posing thoughts and images soon. While you are waiting enjoy this look at the beautiful Dyer Island Conservation area.
