Interesting wording

I saw this recently and there has been a lot of chat on forum about risks attached to going out on RIBs. This wording on helm consul is interesting

Goody - The Guessing Game!

I guess it's on a Sith Ifrican Whale Spotting Safari boat? It's the spotter's tower.

Qantas is Australian, so my guess would be therefore Australia?

I am pretty sure that is Hout Bay in South Africa, the big red cat in the background is Nauticat Charters which operate out of Hout Bay.
