After a no sea day, it was nice to be back out at sea. The weather conditions were no perfect but we managed to see a lot. During the day we managed to see all Marine Big 5. All the Southern Right whale sightings from today, were in the Pearly Beach area. We spotted one of the last mating groups of the season and a few mother-calf pairs. The mating group was quite active right next to our vessel. We had a close encounter with a Southern Right who was playing with floating kelp. On our third trip we were lucky and saw a school of Bottlenose dolphins travelling along the coast. On our way back we stopped at Dyer Island to see the African penguins and at Geyser Rock to see the Cape Fur seals. What a good day.
