It has been a sunny day out at sea. As usual we were heading straight towards Uilenkraalsmond, where a river runs into the bay. These natural estuary are important areas for a lot of different seabirds. We continued our tour along the coast and further along a reef towards Dyer Island. Before we reached the island we stopped for a few moments to have a look at an African penguin. Closer to the island we spotted more of these seabirds. Sad to think that they might be extinct soon, so we are lucky to still find some in our area. Geyser Rock, home to our Cape Fur seals, was quite empty today. Nevertheless we still got to see plenty of them on land as well as in the water. While driving through the world famous Shark Alley we had a closer look at the Bank cormorants nesting on a piece of a ship wreck. After all these great sightings we were heading behind the two islands to see if we can spot a whale. After we reached deeper water we changed course and were heading towards Danger Point. and we were lucky one of the crew members spotted a spout of a Bryde’s whale. We approached the whale accordingly and got to more spouts and had a glimpse of a dorsal fin. What a perfect day out at sea.
