3 Cow-calf pairs! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog

Shortly after we left Kleinbaai harbour we stopped for a sunfish basking just below the surface. Further along the way we encountered some penguins and spotted 3 cow-calf pairs of southern right whales along De Clyde, a reef system stretching from mainland towards Dyer Island. At Geyser Rock we observed the Cape fur seals and already spotted some really big bulls that slowly move to their colony as breeding season is about to start. It has been quite tricky to spot the African penguin lately on the island as we have thousands of Cape Cormorants that are settling to breed and the penguins are just well camouflaged between the black cormorants and the white rocks. Before the wind picked up we made a quick stop at the shark cage diving boats and were heading afterwards straight towards Kleinbaai.
