A whale of a time! Marine Big 5 daily blog

We had another calm day at sea with a light breeze towards the end of our tour. Just outside Kleinbaai harbour we cruised along the coast towards Slasfhfin, the shark cage diving vessel from our sister company. After a few minutes of patience, we were rewarded with great shark activity of two different great white sharks, how amazing! Afterwards, we were heading across a reef system and had a closer look at kelp, the seaweed that can be found all along the coast here. At Dyer Island we made our usual stop closer by to see the endangered African penguins as well as other seabirds that inhabit the island. Not far from there we have the Cape fur seal colony on Geyser Rock. Although Geyser Rock seemed a little empty there were still plenty of seals to observe. Out of Shark Alley and in deeper water it wasn’t long before our spotter Kira saw a spout of a whale. We approached the whale accordingly and soon saw it wasn’t one but two Bryde’s whales. The mother and her calf were travelling relaxed alongside our vessel Dream Catcher. We couldn’t have asked for a better day at sea!
