Orca Whales and Spectacled Petrel – Monday 12 January 2015

January 16, 2015

A pod of Orcas (Killer Whales) was one of the highlights seen during our very first Cape Town Pelagics trip of the year.

Orca Whales photographed during this trip by our guide Barrie Rose.

On Monday 12 January the wind had abated and we were able to depart Simon’s Town harbour and head for the trawling grounds beyond Cape Point. We soon located a long-liner and enjoyed watching and photographing various pelagic species, including a few rarities such as this Spectacled Petrel photographed by foreign visitor and trip participant Michiel van den Bergh.
