We launched our second sea birding trip at the break of dawn on Sunday morning. We departed from Kleinbaai the harbor on board the Whale Whisperer for a promising  birding trip on the open waters of the Agulhas Current.

The weather really treated us to clear blue and sunny skies. The group sighted a total amount of 21 different bird species while out at sea for an approximate seven hours. Besides our birds sightings we spotted a pod of common dolphins, a blue shark and an individual sunfish.
