Marine Big 5 Daily Blog 9 June

Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.

Trip Summary 09 June 2023:

What an incredible day we had out at sea with some calm water and incredible sightings. First. we moved along the coast to join our sister company Marine Dynamics to see some sharks and were not disappointed, spotting multiple Bronze whalers coming to the cage.  Then we headed out into the farther waters to try and find some whales. After some time we finally came across two Bryde’s whales. As usual, these whales were a bit shy, but we managed to see them clearly on the surface. The island system, as always, was rich with sightings. We enjoyed the Cape Fur seals splashing in the shallow water of the alley and those resting on Geyser Rock. And African penguins were also not difficult to spot on Dyer Island.
