Hippo and Crocodile St Lucia Cruise

A gentle breeze caressed my face with moist warm fingers pulling aft, lingering playfully in my hair. I was onboard Advantage Cruiser steaming up the estuary to capture my first hippo on camera.

From away somewhere far in the distance the melodic grunting of hippos playing reached my ears. Getting closer the grunts intensified.

Mere minutes later, we arrived on a violent scene unfolding as we drew near to the hippo pod. Rival males were squaring off vehemently, charging and slashing at each other with their sabre teeth.

A blow landed the younger opponent sharply and he turned tail and fled. The victor gave mock chase to sound a decided “Good riddance!” to the loser.

I had caught it all on film! What an amazing adventure on the Hippo and Crocodile St Lucia Cruise!

Whale Watching St Lucia

With a giant breach, right alongside our boat, the mother humpback drenched us to the skin. She had come up so suddenly from the depths that my mind played the moment out in slow motion for me.

Such raw power and majesty as she exploded through the water’s surface, so close that in my mind, if only I’d reached out, I’d have touched her leaping side as she slid past my field of view.

I enjoy to relive the memory of my Whale Watching St Lucia.

Harbour Cruise Richards Bay

I sat alongside my husband and our five-year-old daughter Maisie. We were leaving the port behind on our way in search of whales and other sea creatures.

Whales hoy! A beautiful family pod, complete with multiple mothers and calves interspersed through the blue waters. A curious calf wandering closer prompted his behemoth mother to rise from the depths, placing herself between the calf and our boat.

So close that we got to take a selfie of our little family with their little family! What a phenomenal memory to be able to make with my little one and Nature’s big ones!

Marine Mammal Ocean Adventure

The beach was hot. Sun-baked sand radiated heat in waves out to the horizon. As we were pushed out into the surf, a wave broke over the nose of the boat and cooled my face where it fell.

Speeding the boat steadfastly to a place only he knew the skipper stood staring knowingly into the distance. A short while later, the boat suddenly leapt to a halt!

Silence; A breeze; The light lapping of water against the hull. The shimmer of a back broke the surface with a fin…

Then, all at once, we were surrounded by them! A pod of playful dolphins frolicking raucously as they enjoyed the water. Leaping, breaching dolphins…

When will your dolphin dreams come true on your very own Dolphin Tour with surf launch.

Cape Vidal iSimangaliso Wetland Park Safari

The safari vehicle rounded a curve to the right and before us opened a majestic African wetland ecosystem.

Lily-walker’s hopping from plant to plant to the music of their silent ballet. A warthog mother and her three piglets trundled the hill at the water’s far edge. The echo of hippo framed the moment as reedbuck, waterbuck and kudu sampled the cool waters together.

Continuing past, we discovered two very mature Cape buffalo that had ensconced themselves in the cooling bliss of the swampland mud. There is only one South African wetland… Discover it with us on the Cape Vidal iSimangaliso Wetlands Park Snorkeling Safari.

Deep Sea Game Fishing Charters St Lucia

I had always dreamed of collecting my very own great fishing story. Today was my chance.

I cast my lure deep into the Indian Ocean; fingers crossed and hoping for the best. I didn’t have long to wait before our crewman yelled “Fish on!” and my reel started playing out at an alarming rate. Little did I know that I was in for the Fight of my Life!

After battling my supper for supremacy for well on a whole hour, we finally caught a glimpse of the bull Dorado’s dorsal and coloured forehead. As I fought him alongside the boat our crewmen gaffed my catch and hauled it onto the boat, seemingly effortlessly.

Later that eve I added salt, pepper, fire and lemon to the Dorado fillets provided by Advantage and proceeded to eat until the end of my very own amazing Deep Sea Game Fishing Charters St Lucia adventure story…

Whale Watching Richards Bay Harbour Cruise

I headed to the water, baggies on, cooler box in hand, ready for my time on the water. A sojourn back to reality with a touch of summer. Out on the bay, Richards Bay, to see the oceanic wildlife including the tugs, the ships, the birds and maybe, if we’re lucky, the resident dolphin.

Leaving all thoughts of land behind, I immersed myself in my surroundings, happy to be land-free. And as we steamed past tug, passenger liner and trawler, my mind cleared, but for an instant, and I loved all again.
