A Marine Big 5 Mission!
Another day out at sea on-board the Dream Catcher and we got to see all of the Marine Big 5. The first group of animals we observed on our trip today was a pod of Humpback dolphins playing around in the swells.
As we headed in the direction of Dyer Island we made a stop-over at one of the shark cage diving vessels, to get some Great white shark action and we weren’t disappointed at all!
As we made our way to the island we spotted three African penguins, we then had a closer look at the Cape Fur seals; most of them were lazing around on their little island, Geyser Rock.
Out in the deeper water we spotted a blow, but unfortunately the whale was on a mission and moved off fast. So we kept looking for more spouts. Our wildlife spotter, Kira spotted some Humpback whales as our tour continued. We approached them accordingly and encountered three traveling adults. The Dyer island eco-system is rich in wildlife and in addition to the Marine Big 5 we also come across other marine life, seabird in this case, like a Shy albatross and various other pelagic birds.
