Due to low tide we once again had to launch from the Gansbaai harbour for our first trip.
On our way around Danger Point our wildlife spotter spotted a Bryde’s whale close by. The whale was unusually relaxed for a Bryde’s whale as they are usually shy and tend to surface a few times before they disappear. Unfortunately it was the only trip where we got to see some whales, but on the second trip for the day we spotted two Indian-Ocean Humpback dolphins. We also managed to see a Great White shark at our sister company Marine Dynamics. And not to forget about all the Cape Fur seals on Geyser Rock.
On our last trip of the day we had on board children from various schools in the Overberg area. These children were winners of the “Marine Month” competition hosted by the Dyer Island Conservation Trust. This competition aimed at enhancing the learners to understand the ocean systems, in the process inspiring them to take care of our oceans.
