Updated News - 02 November 2008

PRETTY much WHALES this last couple of weeks, again like I said 2/3 weeks ago hardly a day goes by that we don't see at least one mother-and-calf pair.


Bonuses lately is lost of dolphins, and even the odd pair of male-female loggerhead turtles ''making babies'' in the ocean before coming ashore shortly to come lay eggs. Weather conditions have been awesome , we either have full day winds and then cannot operate at all, or otherwise we're blessed with long wind still days.

 Please again understand that we won't be taking any bookings if people don't come and pay, there is just too many people that book seats and don't pay and don't pitch – and our policy remains first come first serve, if any agent/guesthouse expects us to keep a seat, that agent/guesthouse will be held responsible for the payment if their client booked don't pitch.

 ( Annemarie, remind me to tell the staff to bring you the beautiful swimming turtle photo we have )

 Hippo and Croc Tours are very busy this time of the year with tour groups – so please make sure to book individuals early to avoid disappointment – we do apologise for certain days that we're fully booked and can't accommodate your pax, specially when we're waiting for those passenger liners in the harbor to bring 200pax that fills all the boats – but remember you're support is precious and appreciated and it's fortunately only a couple of days that we have these huge groups.
