A Beautiful Day And Our Amazing Marine Big 5, 9 December 2019

An amazing morning with an almost immediate spot of a Brydes Whale spout once we had left the harbour. After a few moments of trying to spot the animal, we were surprised by a visit from an adult African Penguin. When the Whale showed itself and excitement radiated around the boat. Although we had to wait a little while for this Brydes whale to show up, the wait was worth it and we got some good looks. Soon after, we headed along the coastline towards the shark cage diving vessels where we were able to find some beautiful Copper Sharks, very active  around the cage. A few moments later, we left the cage diving site and a pod of 4 amazing Humpback Dolphins appeared and they were a delight as always to watch. Dyer Island was packed with Cormorants today, which made it a little tricky to spot some Penguins and Geyser Rock was a hive of  Cape Fur Seal activity as we made our way into Shark Alley. A very exciting day and some great views of out Marine Big 5 animals!
