Birds And Bronzies And Baby Seals, 18 Decemeber 2018

Guide Summary.

Today, the sky was overcast when we launched out on Dream Catcher, moving towards the beach where there looked to be some fish travelling through the area. We could see this due to the scores of Cape Cormorants sitting on the water here and the sight was so beautiful it was decided that we would take a quick  stop and have a look at these beautiful little black birds.

After taking in the view, we travelled along and came across a raft of African Penguins who were porpoising through the water. This is not something we see every day, so we kept our eyes peeled to ensure we got a view when these little torpedoes in tuxedos would erupt from the water.

We then stopped of at our sister company to spend some time with some larger creatures, looking out for a Copper Shark or two. We managed to get some great shots of the animals as they popped up around the boat, exposing their dorsal fins as they surfaced.

Our seal colony was our next stop, where the Cape Fur Seals were carrying on with their daily activities, sleeping and playing and making a racket as they went about it all. Our seals are pretty loud and shock most with their sheep like sounds. We also let the little pups steal our hearts as they sat on the beach. Once we had cruised by them a few times, we slowly made our way back into Kleinbaai Harbour.
