Today we saw four out of the Marine Big 5. The whales showed us mating behaviour again, they were rolling around in the water. The males were busy looking after their female in the middle of the mating group. All the whales we saw today were so relaxed beside our boat, the Whale Whisperer. On the second trip we also spotted some Indo-Pacific Hump-Backed dolphins, these dolphins seemed to be shy, but after a few minutes they travelled right next to the boat. At one point we had the dolphins on the left hand side and the whales on the right of the boat at the same time. We also saw the African penguins on Dyer Island and the Cape Fur seals on Geyser rock. The seals were playing friendly with each other in the crystal clear water of Shark Alley. What a great day out at sea!
