Today we had a bit more wind than the last few days but we still got to see some marine life in the bay.
We had two trips and were lucky to find some whales on both of them. On the first one for the day we were heading straight to Danger Point and then towards Dyer Island when we came across a Humpback whale. The whale wasn’t very playful today, but it showed us its fluke before taking a deeper dive. Just before we reached Dyer Island and the Cape Fur seal colony we spotted a Bryde’s whale.
On our second trip we have been searching a little longer to find some whales but towards the end we spotted a Southern Right whale. The whale was very relaxed around our vessel and came up several times while traveling alongside us.
On both trips we saw the African penguin, one of our endangered bird species in the area as well as the Cape Fur seals.
